Report: LSU ‘prepared’ to move on from Les Miles
The chatter about Les Miles losing his job is getting louder by the day.
Pat Forde of Yahoo reported on Monday that LSU is “prepared” to part ways with Miles in the wake of the team’s blowout loss to Ole Miss. While the decision has not been made final, all signs point to Miles already having one foot out the door.
Forde also notes that the potential buyout for Miles is said to be “staggering.” But as we mentioned over the weekend, a separate report claims the $15 million price tag associated with firing Miles will not be an issue for LSU’s boosters.
Miles reportedly met with LSU officials recently and said that his intention is to retire after the 2016 season. After beginning the season 7-0, the Tigers have lost three straight and are no longer in contention for the College Football Playoff.
If Miles leaves LSU, it is highly unlikely that he will retire. At age 62, he should have at least a few more good seasons left in him and plenty of interest around the country.
