LSU hasn’t even fired Les Miles yet, but the school has reportedly already picked out a big-time candidate to potentially replace him.
The Tigers have their eyes set on Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher as Miles’ replacement, according to FootballScoop.com’s Scott Roussel, who told Bleacher Report Radio that the rumors about Fisher were true.
“It’s my full belief, if they pull the trigger and move Les out, that Jimbo will be the next coach at LSU,” Roussel said on the Bleacher Report Afternoon Drive.
Fisher served as LSU’s offensive coordinator from 2000-06 before joining Florida State’s staff. He was then promoted to head coach by the Seminoles in 2010 and has since led them to three ACC championships and a national championship in 2013.
