Reports: Les Miles discussed LSU coaching future with boosters
After a week filled with speculation regarding his job security, Glenn Guilbeau of Gannett Louisiana reported late Friday that Miles indicated to boosters that this Saturday’s game against Texas A&M will be his last.
“I had no suggestion that this would be my last game in Tiger Stadium,” Miles told ESPN.
The school also released a statement, saying that the report is not true.
A loss on Saturday would give the Tigers a fourth-place finish in the SEC West, tied with 2014 for the worst conference performance in Miles’s tenure.
LSU is coming off three-straight losses for the first time since 1999 and currently is unranked.
LSU leadership is “heavily in favor” of a change but final decision not made and Miles has not been formally informed, per source— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) November 27, 2015
Les Miles is "very likely" to be let go soon and FSU's Jimbo Fisher is still LSU's primary target, per another source.— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) November 27, 2015
Miles has won two SEC titles and a national championship since joining the program in 2005. He has a 110–32 record at the school, but will miss the 10-win mark for the second year in a row.
Miles is under contract until 2019, and a buyout would cost the school roughly $15 million.
