LSU shoots down report that Les Miles told boosters he’ll be fired
LSU announced on Twitter that Les Miles had not spoken to a booster club about his job future. The university contradicted an earlier report that suggested that Miles had told members of the Gridiron Club, an LSU booster organization, that Saturday’s game against Texas A&M would be his final one with the program.
“Contrary to media reports, LSU coach Les Miles has not resigned nor did he indicate he was resigning when speaking to booster group today,” the program said on Twitter.
UPDATE: Miles went so far to say in an interview with ESPN’s Maria Taylor that he “had no suggestion that this was going to be my last game,” according to David Ching (also of ESPN).
It has been a tumultuous week in Baton Rouge, La. Athletic director Joe Alleva has apparently not told Miles about his fate, but reports suggest that a vocal faction of insiders and boosters want Miles fired.
As of right now, Miles has not been fired and does not plan on resigning. Miles has gone 110-32 in 11 season at LSU and guided the team to a national championship in 2007.
