Matt Canada joins NC State staff as offensive coordinator

Posted December 15, 2012

— North Carolina State University head football coach Dave Doeren announced on Saturday that Matt Canada, who most recently coached at Wisconsin University, has joined his staff as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. 

Canada led the Badger offense in 2012, a year after he was the offensive coordinator at Northern Illinois under Doeren. 

"Matt Canada has one of the most creative offensive minds in the country and he does a great job of utilizing strengths and hiding weaknesses," Doeren said in a statement. "Matt has had to run his offense with different personnel and has been successful each time. He will make the transition much easier for me."

With Heisman candidate Montee Ball in the backfield in 2012, Canada's offense at Wisconsin averaged 237.8 rushing yards per game, which ranked 12th nationally. 

At Northern Illinois in 2011, the Huskies had a balanced offensive attack that finished in the top 12 nationally in scoring offense, total offense and rushing offense. Northern Illinois was one of only five teams nationally to average at least 230 yards rushing and passing per game. 

"I am grateful to Dave for the opportunity to join him at NC State," Canada in a statement. "It's a special place and I think the future is bright for the program. I am excited to meet and being working with our players.".

Prior to arriving at Northern Illinois in 2011, Canada spent seven years at Indiana University as quarterbacks coach, passing game coordinator and offensive coordinator.

    Wisconsin University? Most Badger fans were lukewarm about Canada's offensive approach this year. Maybe he was in over his head and can improve. We'll see. I'm not bummed that he left.
