Bingo. Dude doesn't want to coach anymore. Just wants to keep cashing those LSU checks. I don't blame him.


It’s funny how many people are in denial about this.

Les is perfectly content with taking in a hefty salary from LSU by doing nothing but pretending to be looking for a job. He's no better than a bum on the street trying to milk the system of benefits and it's at the heavy expense of the school.


You’re pointing the anger in the wrong place

Our AD was the one who gave him that buyout. Blaming miles for taking advatange of that is so childish. Grow up Peter Pan. You’d do the same damn thing.

Totally agree. I will add that Les wanted to be fired.

Les and his agent actively pursued that extension and even applied outside pressure through the Arkansas BS.
Then a few years in Les either got tired or pissed and dared JA to fire him. Now Les is enjoying a very nice retirement and mooning JA.

And our AD was the one who called that bluff. The blame lies at his feet. Miles is doing what’s best for his career and his family. Blaming him is so stupid

No he wouldn’t. You’re a fool to believe so. He’s retired.

IF he is intentionally bombing interviews, it's unethical. LSU agreed to pay him as long as he was attempting to find a similar job. Taking interviews for show is not him holding up his end, it's him stealing knowing it can't be proven.
All he has to do is sell himself, show his success in recruiting and tell them he intends to run the offense he has always run at LSU. That is an honest pitch that will always end with a polite "No thanks".

Well who's fault is that? Everybody knew Miles wasn't leaving LSU for Arkansas. There was no chance. Everybody but for one person knew that (Joe Aleva). If you are mad at Miles for collecting on the contract he negioated with LSU then be mad at who agreed to it at LSU.

I guess Kansas doesn't have the chest to hire Les.

I'm fine with that. You fired him, you pay him.


I agree with this. I think it was time to part ways with Les. It should have been done after the 2015 season.

But after him being fired 4 games into the 2016 season, he's been supportive of the LSU football program and shown himself to be a class act regarding getting dismissed.

He signed a contract guaranteeing a buyout, providing he attempts to look for work. It sounds like he's holding up his end of the bargain.

He deserves the money in my opinion.

Anyone whining about this is showing how classless and petty they are.

Miles may be a lot of things, unethical is not one of them.

re: Is Les Out of the Running at Kansas?
And I constantly question why do universities pay large amounts of money to keep crappy coaches. There are about 3 or 4 coaches that are worth buy out clauses. We increased our buy out clause for Les when we already had major problems with him. A smart AD has to have conversations with other coaches to keep his options open. Her we are paying Les to eat grass and beer-hose football fields and still collect money from us. that's just stupid of universities.

Part of his buyout involves seeking a job. It is treated like unemployment.

Do you know how many programs would love to have the record lsu had from 2012-2016.
Not every program thinks 10 win seasons are their floor and he has proven he can go to a horrible program and make them respectable in a shirt time

I think it's pretty clear that he doesn't want to coach
Think of how much money he was getting paid to coach at LSU. Then think of the jobs he’s been in the running for. Think of how much money those schools are willing to pay.

There’s your answer. Les just asks for his standard rate, and the Purdues and Kansases and Houstons don’t have that much money to spend.

Good job, Miles haters.
