Les Miles received
a seven-year contract extension and a raise from LSU on Wednesday, one day after reportedly fielding a lucrative offer to coach at SEC rival Arkansas.
"Les Miles is one of the premier coaches in the country and has LSU in contention for championships year in and year out," LSU athletic director Joe Alleva said. "Only two coaches in the 119-year history of LSU football have coached as many years at this school and only one has won more games. Les Miles has made a commitment to LSU and LSU is solidifying its commitment to Les Miles."
LSU has not released details of Miles' raise, but his previous contract paid about $3.75 million annually through 2017.
