Matt Canada hired by Maryland after stint at LSU

Maryland is hiring Matt Canada as offensive coordinator, sources told ESPN.com.

Canada finalized the agreement Tuesday and was on Maryland's campus to meet with the team. He will sign a three-year contract with the school.

LSU parted ways with Canada earlier this month after he spent just one season as the Tigers' offensive coordinator despite receiving a three-year contract that paid him $1.5 million per year. Canada and LSU reached a separation agreement that will pay him $1.7 million.

Canada replaces Walt Bell, who left earlier this month to become Florida State's offensive coordinator. Canada has led offenses at LSU, Pitt, NC State, Wisconsin, Indiana, Northern Illinois and Butler.
