LSU and offensive coordinator Matt Canada are expected to part ways after the Citrus Bowl,
The Advocate reported Wednesday night.
The Tigers' offense in 2017 had its moments. They scored at least 27 points in eight of 12 games, and they controlled the ball in a 17-16 win at Florida and were inches away from completing pivotal, long passes in a 24-10 loss at Alabama. The unit also produced the best passing offense in three years at LSU.
Here are five notable stats/moments from the Canada-led offense...
LSU starting quarterback Danny Etling has a 1:73 interception-to-attempt ratio, ranking No. 2 in Southeastern Conference history for quarterbacks with at least with at least 400 attempts. He trails only AJ McCarron (Alabama), who has a 1:86.3 ratio.
LSU has turned the ball over just eight times this season, which is tied with Alabama for the fewest amount of turnovers in the nation. Etling and Myles Brennan have each thrown two interceptions this season. The four interceptions thrown are the fewest in a season in school history.
With a pair of receiving touchdowns against Arkansas, senior WR DJ Chark has now scored touchdowns three different ways this year -- rushing, receiving and punt returns. Chark is one of only seven players in LSU history to score touchdowns in the same season on the ground, through the air and on a punt return. Kevin Faulk remains the only player in LSU history to score touchdowns four ways in the same year as he did it rushing, receiving, and on both kickoff and punt returns in 1998.
LSU running back Darrel Williams became the first player in LSU history to finish with 100+ rushing and receiving yards. Williams totaled 103 yards on the ground and 105 yards receiving against Ole Miss. Williams is the 19th FBS player in the last five years to go for over 100 yards in both categories and the first in the SEC since at least 2013.
Canada Guice Etling
Derrius Guice rushed for 276 yards and Danny Etling threw for 200 yards against Ole Miss to become the first tandem in school history to have multiple 200-yards rushing/passing games in school history. Guice and Etling have combined to do it twice – the first time was actually a 300-yard passing/200-yard rushing effort against Texas A&M in 2016. The duo once again did it against the Aggies in 2017.
