Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema has hired Matt Canada to be the Badger’s offensive
coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He replaces Paul Chryst, who left to become the head coach at Pittsburgh.
Canada spent last season in the same role at Northern Illinois, guiding the Huskies to an 11-3 record, a MAC championship and a win in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
Under Canada, Northern Illinois finished among the top 12 in the country in scoring offense, total offense and rushing offense last season.
