The Matt Canada experience has ended in Baton Rouge, but not everyone is thrilled about his likely replacement.
Steve Ensminger is expected to be hired as LSU's next offensive coordinator, barring any last minute snags, according to sources. The move is not yet final, but expected to be completed soon, according to a report from The Advocate's Ross Dellenger Monday evening.
The makeshift mattress in Steve Ensminger’s office could get more use than ever in 2018.
Ensminger, a 59-year-old Baton Rouge native, has not served as a permanent offensive coordinator in 20 years. He was last in that position at Clemson in 1997-98. He had stops as a coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Texas A&M (1994-96), Georgia (1991-93) and Louisiana Tech (1988-90).
Ensminer served as the interim offensive coordinator for LSU in eight games after Cam Cameron was fired in 2016.

The deal is done: LSU and former offensive coordinator Matt Canada have mutually separated.
Both of LSU football’s coordinators cashed some enormous checks this week.
