Report: Les Miles is frontrunner for Kansas job
Could we be seeing “The Hat” back on the sidelines next season?
The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman reports that Les Miles is the frontrunner for the Kansas Jayhawks’ head coaching job. He says there is a lot of momentum surrounding the idea of Miles taking over at Kansas.
Miles will be 65 this month and has been in search of a coaching job since being let go by LSU two years ago. His name was in the mix for multiple gigs but nothing materialized, so he went into TV and even acting.
Kansas has not won more than 3 games in a season since firing Mark Mangino in 2009. They are 3-6 this season and just fired David Beaty despite the program’s big win over TCU two weeks ago.
Miles coached LSU from 2005-2016. Prior to that, he spent four seasons at Oklahoma State. He has a .721 career winning percentage as a head coach.
