Les Miles has been without a coaching job since LSU fired him four weeks into the 2016 season, but a report Tuesday (Nov. 6) said there is “a lot of momentum” for him to become the coach at Kansas.
According to The Athletic, Miles is a “frontrunner” for the job that came open with the school fired David Beaty after he went 6-39 over three-plus season and 2-31 in Big 12 Conference play. He will coach the Jayhawks through the end of the season.
Kansas athletic director Jeff Long said in a tweet the school would seek an experienced head coach “that is a proven program builder and a strong recruiter. … an established leader of men, both on and off the field.”
