Former LSU assistant football coach Matt Canada has landed a new job with an NFL team.

The 47-year old Canada, who spent one year at LSU, working as the offensive coordinator in 2017, was hired as the new offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday.

Out of coaching this year, Canada served as Maryland's offensive coordinator and interim head coach Matt Canada in 2018, guiding the Terrapins to a 5-7 record.

The former offensive coordinator at Pitt in 2016, Canada left the Panthers to join LSU, becoming one of the highest-paid coordinators in college football.

A native of New Palestine, Indiana, Canada left LSU after only one season, after reported philosophical differences with Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron.

Canada has also served as offensive coordinator at Indiana (2007-2010), Northern Illinois (2011), Wisconsin (2012), and North Carolina St. (2013-2015).
