Les Miles could be out of a job by the end of the day, according to ESPN national college football reporter Joe Schad.
The LSU coach won a national title in 2007, but the Tigers have not been close to another championship since 2011, and Miles’ team is currently mired in a three-game losing streak that’s sent it tumbling from No. 2 to unranked in the AP Top 25.
“There’s a very good possibility that a decision on Les Miles’ future could be resolved by the end of the day,” Schad’s source told him, adding that such a resolution will likely include Miles’ firing.
“In Louisiana, we expect to compete for national championships, and he’s not doing it,” Schad said the source told him.

Joe Schad says there is a chance that Tigers coach Les Miles could be fired by the end of the day.
Yahoo’s Pat Forde appeared to corroborate Schad’s report.
“LSU ‘prepared’ to fire Les Miles,” Forde tweeted this morning. “No decision final at this point, but it is being discussed.”
