Reports suggest LSU boosters ready to buy out contract of Les Miles
There is no official word yet confirming a decision, but multiple reports on Monday suggest the end is possibly coming for Les Miles as head coach at LSU. A day after a report suggested a $15 million buyout would not stand in the way of LSU boosters having their way with showing Miles the door in Baton Rouge.
“In Louisiana, we expect national championships, and we’re not in it,” one source said to Schad for his ESPN report. Per Schad’s report, LSU boosters have already agreed to pay between $15 million and $20 million to buy out the contract.
LSU has won two national championships since 1959. One came under current Alabama head coach Nick Saban. The other came with Miles as the head coach, and Miles took the Tigers to a second national championship game appearance as well. It was just a few weeks ago LSU was in prime position for a spot in this year’s College Football Playoff, but since then the Tigers have lost three straight games to Alabama, Arkansas and Ole Miss.
