LSU HC Ed Orgeron said at SEC Media Days that hiring former OC Matt Canada was "a mistake."
"It's tough when you make a mistake, but it's even tougher not to admit you made a mistake and it's just not a good fit," Orgeron said, explaining that "circumstances were different" when he was hired for the full-time head-coaching job at the end of the 2016 season. Orgeron -- who prefers a more simplified, traditional offensive approach -- and Canada -- whose offenses are based on more complex schemes and shifts -- truly did seem like oil and water for much of last season, with the most notable example of their clash of concepts coming when Coach O tried to take on a more active offensive hand prior to LSU's loss to Troy. The Tigers hired Steve Ensminger to replace Canada at the end of the season, with Canada subsequently moving on to Maryland. Jul 17 - 11:48 AM
