LSU coach Les Miles discussed his future with the LSU Gridiron Club booster group on Friday, according to multiplereports.

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.

Miles denied that report, according to Ross Dellenger of The Advocate. “Heck no,” he reportedly told two people who spoke to Dellenger. He also denied the “last game” comments to ESPN's Maria Taylor. 

“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.

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.
