Former LSU head coach joined ESPNU Radio this week and was asked by Marcus Spears how many schools have reached out to him and offered him a job.

“None, not one,” Miles said.

Here is a two-minute clip of Miles talking with Spears about his future.

And all of those years I was told he was top 3 with Saban and Urban.

It's undoubtedly a hard blow to his self-esteem, but he should be able to retire quite comfortably. He's a good man who showed extreme loyalty to us at LSU when his own Alma Mater tried to woo him away. (If I were in the same position, I would have bailed on ANY other school I was coaching if LSU offered me the HC position as an alumnus.) I will always love and respect this man for his integrity despite the nay-sayers who don't even know him. He is a fine man who deserves respect for his accomplishments. Maybe coaching isn't for him anymore, as much as he would love it, and he could move to a very lucrative and high visibility position in other areas of the sports world. I'd LOVE to see him nudging Booger McFarland in the ribs every Saturday night for the foreseeable future.

Especially since Boog is a Saban disciple that would be great

A coherent and honest response from Les.

Les would probably make a decent high school coach right now...no joking, I think his time as a college coach has come and gone. He was fortunate to have so many wins under his belt. One has to scratch one's head when trying to understand how he was successful for a while.. He was no strategic genius to say the least. Hope Les and his family well, but wouldn't want him in any capacity to be involved with LSU again.

One doesn't have to scratch their head and wonder. How about year after year of top recruits pouring in. It's a little tough, even for a bad coach to have a losing season when you have 4 & 5 star players two deep at every position.

The reason why LSU keep Miles so long is because when they lost Saban because of not giving him full control of program they knew the they let the best get away and Miles started winning and they did not want to make the same mistake with Miles what they did to Saban so Miles had carte Blanche to frick up the program by his bull shite offense amd coordinators So imo this is why Miles over stayed and under performed hence no new gigs

LSU didn't lose Saban bc they refused to give him control. I like how people make up a bunch of bullshite, when they have no idea about the facts.

Shocked at how people fail to embrace the real answer: Miles surfed the Saban wave until it finally crashed on the beach. Saban did all the heavy lifting to NC status. To think Miles could accomplish what he did without Saban first setting the table is just absurd. Miles was handed the keys to the kingdom. His coaching ability NEVER changed from day 1. The program came down to his coaching level. He's a nice guy, but let's dispense with the sophomoric fawning.

Tigerpawl - Saban was/is a great coach, probably the best college football coach EVER. With that said even he wasnt capable of providing a 10+ year WAVE as you call it. Thats whats just absurd. Now saying he set the table for what came after him at LSU is obvious but you cant give Saban all of the credit for LSU's consistent sucess during CLM's first 8-10 years here.

Ha ha, that is because he is not s good coach.

Not a single school. That's not surprising at all. Everyone knows he underperformed here at LSU as a coach considering what he had to work with. The talent speaKS for itself. We led the nation in nfl talent out of all schools. It was time for him to go after he showed no semblance of making a run at a title anytime in the future bc of how he refused to change. Hopefully he gets another chance somewhere, but he has himself to blame for how he handled the program at LSU the last several years.

First of all, I just the understand the hatred for Les Miles I know he was hard headed to a fault but when a coach had the success Miles had doing it his way most coaches don't change and we all know he should have. And he had a lot of success at LSU, Coach of the year (2011), he averaged 10 wins a season in a 11 year career with a 114-34 record with 64 SEC wins, was 2-1 in SEC Championships, 1-1 in National Championships. From 2005 -2015 LSU won more games than any other SEC school and that's just some of his accomplishments. Secondly for Miles to do something stupid in a job interview like a lot of you said he would have to be offered the job or invited to an interview he stated he was not offered one job or even contacted. It's really funny how Ex Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin is said to be look at for a job when Les Miles was undefeated against his teams not even Nick Saban can say that.I think Les Miles can still be a successful HC at a Power 5 school and don't be surprise if Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh is still struggling that Les won't get that call from his alma mater. There's going to be a school that needs stability, direction and wins and will give ole Les a call. For more of Les Miles accomplishments: LINK

I don't miss him. He should have taken the UM job in '08. Even in '11, he won in despite of himself, at least until the 2nd gump game.

That was all BS that les used to get a raise. Michigan never offered les anything.

I love the man, but despise the coach. I hate that he's done this to himself professionally...but then again, he's set financially anyway. He has become a cautionary tale of not knowing the difference between determination and flat-out bull-headedness.

LM should have been released after the stunt he pulled in the 2011 season championship game.
Reply41 months
yep, his game plan was "i know we will lose anyway so just go have fun and not worry about trying to win"

TWT, what "stunt" are you referring to?

You would last about 15 seconds as a College AD if you fired a coach that had just put together one of if not the best regular season in NCAA and SEC History just because he was out coached in the BS Rematch NCG by the best college coach in NCAA history. But yea you go ahead with that line of thinking chief LOL.

No interest from ULaL? He already knows the recruiting territory.

But he’s such a good family man!!!!

Hard to imagine tbh.

IMHO Les doomed his chances when he showed his Granite-like head by not adapting his offense. THAT is the reason ADs have shyed away. It sucks because he is a good coach and great developer of young men.
Reply41 months
I concur Chuck and these AD's are only hurting themselves by snubbing Coach Miles.

agree, stubbornness and inability to adapt to changes in any sport will get you gone....its an irony cause trust in a process is supposed to yield positive results.
