Matt Canada’s future as LSU offensive coordinator has been in peril since he drew some criticism from coach Ed Orgeron following the loss to Troy earlier this season.

Now, a report from Football Scoop suggests Canada may be looking for his own exit. A report about the recently opened Rice job said, “We are also told LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada is seeking an interview.”

That followed a report from college football insider Chris Landry, who said the Canada-Orgeron relationship continued to be strained, and Canada would seek a Group of 5 job after the season.

Orgeron has said if Canada left, he would consider moving Steve Ensminger to the offensive coordinator position for the Tigers’ bowl game.
