How Much Did Matt Canad’s Buyout Cost?
After just one year in Baton Rouge, Matt Canada is gone, and it will cost LSU. The program agreed to a buyout of Canada's deal for the final two years.
Additionally, it puts LSU into a situation where they need to find another offensive mind, and one with a particular skill set. The Louisiana Radio Network has more:
"LSU athletics reportedly paid 1.7 million dollars to buyout the final two years of Matt Canada’s contract. So the search is on for a new offensive coordinator.
LSU will start an inexperienced player at quarterback next season, most likely either Myles Brennan who who will be a sophomore next season or Lowell Narcisse, who will be a redshirt freshman in 2018. LSU needs to find an offensive coordinator that has a history at developing quarterbacks.
Canada’s modern motion offense was expected to bring big results, but ended up flat lining in big games. This is a very important hire for Orgeron, because if he misfires again, it could mean the end of his tenure at LSU"
