Former LSU coach Les Miles is reportedly very interested in the head coaching job at Ole Miss, according to college football writer Dan Wolken of USA Today.

The possible connection between Ole Miss and Les Miles started shortly after Hugh Freeze resigned from the head coaching position last Thursday.

Well I'm "extremely interested" in sleeping with Carrie Underwood, but my chances are probably pretty slim.

Les recruited well. Wouldn't want him that close to LSU with all his in-state connections.

This is the biggest issue I see besides him coaching again and having the same offensive mentality.

Les has to put out press release stories like this to make it look like he's actively looking for another job.

Doesn't CLM have to at least feign interest in all available jobs to continue to draw his LSU severance paycheck?

I'm not exactly a Les Miles fan boi...but honestly a program like OM doesn't deserve a coach like Les Miles. The fit of Lane Kiffen would be better...

Absolutely. He's already signed with ESPN as an analyst for the upcoming season.

I hope he doesn't get the Ole Miss job. I want to see him coach at Nebraska in a couple years

Nebraska would be an amazing fit. If any team and fan base could embrace grind-it-out, run it down their throat football, it would be Nebraska. Plus it's a much classier school more deserving of a classy coach.

I am really hoping Les doesn't go anywhere. I hope he stays in BR and becomes a great LSU personality and advocate. As the years go by, I can see people really warming up to him and his legacy.

Les is better than this situation. I'd hate for him to ruin his reputation by coaching during sanctions. I don't see how anyone can truly succeed at OM right now. The NCAA mess is just too big. But if he wants to coach then he wants to coach. I just think it's bad situation to walk into.

Les has made it known he wants to coach. If offered, he would and should take the job and try and rebuild a program. If successful, he would certainly prove he's a good coach and administrator. Unfortunately for Les, I don't see any of these things happening. Too many lower tier schools have passed on him. I believe his future lies in broadcasting. Maybe pair him with Mark May and pick up where he and Dr. Lou left off. That would be entertaining!

Miles is interested in any school willing to hire him at this point. There's a simple reason why he has not been hired. THE MAN IS NOT A GOOD COACH! LSU is on a only a few teams in the country that has the talent to match up with Alabama on a consistent yearly basis. Bama has a winning streak because LSU gets consistently out coached. Most teams use different schemes weekly to exploit opponents weaknesses. LSU runs the same plays every week. How often do you see LSU have long drives. There non existent! 99% of LSU's scores are big (30+) yard plays. It had to be this way Because Cam and Miles' philosophy was run, run, incomplete pass, punt. Bama is not a team you will score consistently on huge plays. LSU's inability to sustain drives is why LSU has this losing streak. That is a direct reflection of the coaching. That's a direct reflection of Les Miles' coaching ability and philosophy. Almost every school in the country knows this. That's why Les Miles is still unemployed as a Head Coach. If Ole Miss hires him it is because of desperation and they have absolutely no other options.

The simple reason is he wants more than what most programs are willing to pay. He would get less money from LSU if he takes another head coaching job. So his next gig needs to pay well.

This is a very well thought out point...unfortunately, it is bullshite. Les has not been offered a job simply because most teams can't even compete with the $ that he makes in his buyout from LSU.
