As reported by FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman, LSU officials and Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Matt Canada had “very good meetings” Tuesday and are nearing a deal to make Canada the Tigers’ new offensive coordinator.

Canada’s name has risen as a favorite for the position after LSU coach Ed Orgeron’s reported first choice, Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, was named Florida Atlantic’s next coach Monday. Under Canada this year, the Panthers ranked 10th in scoring offense (42.3 points per game) and 42nd in total offense (447.5 yards per game).
LSU (7-4, 5-3 SEC) will play Louisville in the Citrus Bowl on Dec. 31.
