Is Les Miles getting a look at a potential next job?
Probably not. Michigan seems pretty content with Jim Harbaugh. However, Miles, who was fired by LSU earlier this year, will attend the Wolverines’ final home game of the season against Indiana on Nov. 19, according to The Detroit News.
Miles is returning to Ann Arbor, where he spent his playing days as an offensive lineman in the mid-1970s. He met his wife, Kathy, while serving as a graduate assistant for Michigan later on, then coached by Bo Schembechler.
The former Tigers coach is pleased with the way his alma mater, the No. 2-ranked Wolverines, have played this season.
“I am thrilled with Jim Harbaugh,” Miles told The Detroit News. “I love what’s going on. He’s competitive, he fights and he’s teaching what he knows. I can’t be any happier.”
Miles likely wouldn’t mind seeing Michigan beat top-ranked Alabama in a potential College Football Playoff matchup, as he certainly had plenty of battles with the Crimson Tide during his SEC days.
Although Miles is enjoying his new free time since being fired in late September, getting replaced by assistant Ed Orgeron, the former LSU coach is still focused on getting back on the sidelines on Saturdays.
“I’m not done climbing,” Miles told The Detroit News. “There has to be another championship out there I can win somewhere.”
