The Tigers are expected to "part ways" with the top assistant coach.

A major change is reportedly coming to LSU's coaching staff.

Multiple reports have suggested that the Tigers are expected to make a change at the offensive coordinator spot after the bowl game against Notre Dame.

ESPN has confirmed that LSU and offensive coordinator Matt Canada are expected to "part ways" after the Citrus Bowl.

From ESPN:

Canada will coach the Tigers against Notre Dame in the Citrus Bowl presented by Overton's, but a move likely will come immediately after the game. The (Baton Rouge) Advocate first reported LSU's decision to cut ties with Canada, who is completing his first season as offensive coordinator.

Canada is the nation's highest-paid offensive coordinator, earning $1.5 million, and he has two years left on his contract. According to The Advocate, LSU is discussing a potential settlement with Canada's representatives.

Tight ends coach Steve Ensminger is expected to take over for Canada.
