re: ***Official*** Miles gets raise/contract extension at LSU (Posted on 11/28/12 at 2:56 pm to 870Hog)
quote: "The coaching business is a competitive one and it is important to compensate our coach for his accomplishments and his worth," Alleva said. "Les has not received a pay increase since his salary was automatically elevated following our national championship in 2007 and he has continued to keep LSU on the national stage.
"Our intent was to address his contract following this year's bowl game, but speculation about other job opportunities accelerated our process a little," Alleva said. "I think we have accomplished the important step of securing Les Miles as our head coach for the long-term good of the program."
