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.

Tanking any interviews on purpose. Why coach when you are getting paid millions from LSU.

His reputation for being hard headed and overly loyal to assistants at the detriment of his own program precede him.

I also think age may have something to do with it. Les is in his 60's a lot of programs want to hire an up and coming younger coach that they can build the program on for numerous years. Not someone who is nearing retirement. I do wish him the best though and hope someone takes a chance on him.

Was he loyal to Mallory after the Malveto disaster? Miles was a lot of things, but overly loyal to assistants is not one of them. If an assistant wasn’t working out, he cut bait, and found them a new job with quickness.

This isn’t news. Had he been offered one, it would’ve been made public one way or another even if he had turned it down

No doubt Les Miles is a great guy, but what did everyone expect after what occurred here at LSU?
Reply41 months
If he had been offered one and turned it down he would have probably breached his contract with LSU to be looking for a new coaching job and they could likely get out of paying out all or at least some of the rest of his contract. . His contract requires him to look for a job in good faith while LSU is continuing to pay him. That is what he is doing.

Probably the truth: How can you know for sure? After all he is supposed to make an earnest effort to seek a job, contractual, but how hard is he really trying? Truth resides in the honest people of God.......

You can certainly ask how hard he is really trying to land one of these jobs. Les is smart enough to say the right things like "I am interested in coaching again", as to say he is not looking for another job might be a breach of contract with LSU to mitigate his contract situation with them. . Looking for a job and actually trying to get the job or an offer is two completely different things. So it may not be as much that schools aren't interested in him in coaching, as much as that he is going through the motions and saying all the correct things but in the end not trying extremely hard to land these jobs by subtly demanding too much money or doing other things that would tend to make schools look another way while Les is meeting the requirements of his contract at LSU to look for another coaching job.

I love Les as a person, but this is funny.

This speaks volumes given the shear number of head coaching vacancies there are this year.

LoL. Not one offer But the faithful will come on here saying hes really not trying, LSU is still paying him, yadda, yadda. Yet that money runs out in a couple years, and he will then be too old to hire for sure. Its time to face reality, LSU made Les. And he held them back from greater glory. And every team in the nation saw that

"too old to hire" in a few years - You made my point. He does enough to not get hired the next few years and continues to get paid by LSU. At 64, his kids are out of school and he never has to work again. If he really wants to coach he could still coach high school to be around the game and kids but he does not have to get a coaching job. He only has to look like he is acting in good faith in trying to find a new coaching job for LSU to have to pay him.

Greater glory? What’s that even mean?

Amen RobbBobb. LSU made Les and not the other way around, as he was a liability more than he was an asset. Moreover, every AD in America knows it too, which is why they all avoid Miles like the plague. A lot of people deny it, but nonetheless, it couldn't be any more apparent. Now this is not to say that Miles was a bad guy because he wasn't. He just wasn't a very good coach that's all, but there was nothing wrong with his character.

If Les were half the coach that the revisionists claim him to be, he would have had a job before the 2017 season. Richt landed a Miami, and turned them into a contender. I was and am still amazed how much crap LSU got for letting go of Legendary Les as compared to what UGA got for letting a quality coach light Richt go.

Richt was not a quality coach at UGA. Bama embarrassed him twice in his house and we embarrassed him in ATL.

Just so I have this right...Miles has a better win %, as many SEC titles and a natty but he's shite and Richt is quality? I'm amazed that so many LSU fans consider Miles to be a crappy coach despite the numbers. Wonder how great you would have considered him had he actually had to get his arse kicked annually by Bama?

Damn Miles and his gobbledegoop coach-speak.

I think the word you’re looking for is gobbledegook. gob·ble·dy·gook 'gäb?lde?go?ok noun informal language that is meaningless or is made unintelligible by excessive use of abstruse technical terms; nonsense.

Say what you will about Les, but he’s brutally honest! I don’t buy the comments about him not seeking employment because LSU is paying him. He’s been raking in 4-5 million per year for over a decade! He’s set! Coaches( especially coaches with a NC), are egomaniacs, and want to prove that they are the best at what they do. So to admit that no one wants him has to be a very humbling and humiliating experience for Miles. I feel for him, as one day everyone of us reaches a point in life where we’re past our prime.The difference is we don’t have to admit it on tv or radio. I hope Les does get what he’s looking for. If not, he did a lot for the Tigers and I appreciate his efforts! Thanks for Always being a Tiger, Coach!
