Pat Narduzzi Says He Loves Matt Canada, Words in 2019 Video Were ‘Twisted’

Pat Narduzzi Says He Loves Matt Canada, Words in 2019 Video Were ‘Twisted’

Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi made headlines on Monday after a 2019 video was unearthed of him describing former offensive coordinator Matt Canada’s exit from the program.

In that video, Narduzzi said Canada had been impatient in wanting to leave Pitt and was not worth the $1 million salary Pitt had offered him.

On Tuesday, Narduzzi responded, saying that his words were “twisted” and that he loves Canada.

“With Matt Canada, our relationship has never changed,” Narduzzi said. “I love Matt Canada. He’s an unbelievable offensive coordinator. I’m happy he’s wearing the black and gold next door, OK? The guy did a tremendous job as our offensive coordinator. I didn’t want to lose him. That’s why we tried to pay him a million dollars. And everybody has got to make decisions.”

Narduzzi explained that he was telling the story of Canada’s departure at a clinic for young coaches and was using it as recommendation for them to take a more patient approach.

“You know, everyone wants to twist words around,” Narduzzi said. “I love Matt Canada. That guy is awesome. Like I said, the guy’s going to find his path one way or another, and he made a heck of a lot of money doing it. I know he wants to be a head coach, and I love Matt. I don’t think anything further needs to be said. If Matt took that the wrong way, I sure hope he didn’t. I have not talked to him since because he’s busy, I’m busy. In our world, it doesn’t matter. That’s about all I’ve got on that.”
