Miles was fired last September after LSU started 2-2 following a loss to Auburn. He went 114-34 in 12 seasons with the Tigers, with a national championship during the 2007 campaign.
It’s interesting to hear Miles’ name come up for the Minnesota job. The position is open after Tracy Claeys was fired. On Wednesday, it was reported that Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin could be a possibility for the job as well.
