SI.com: Matt Canada Let Go As Offensive Coordinator

According to SI.com, NC State has let go of NC State offensive coordinator Matt Canada. Canada has spent three seasons at NC State as offensive coordinator, and he received a three-year contract extension in the spring.

NC State ranked No. 57 nationally in total offense, averaging 412.8 yards per game.  The Wolfpack finished third in the ACC in scoring offense (33.2 points per game) but in the two potential wins the Wolfpack left on the table, Louisville and Virginia Tech, State scored just 13 points.

Canada has been linked to various offensive coordinator and head coaching vacancies over the last year with speculation that he nearly left for Tennessee prior to signing his extension this year.

NC State will be replacing quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who didn't take major steps statistically as a senior as many had projected, with the Wolfpack's passing attack ranking 77th nationally.

Pack Pride will have more on the Canada move in the near future.

UPDATE: NC State Associate AD Fred Demarest has confirmed that Matt Canada has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator.
