LSU Athletic Director says Les Miles will ‘continue to be our coach’

LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva made it clear Saturday night that the school’s head coach Les Miles isn’t going anywhere, despite rumors to the contrary.

After the Tigers beat Texas A&M by a score of 19-7, Alleva threw his support behind Miles.

Miles was carried by his players after the game as the rabid crowd in Baton Rouge chanted his name in a rousing show of support.

With a career record of 111-32, it’s hard to imagine the school could find another head coach who could match what Miles has meant to the program.

Keeping him around seems like the smart thing to do here.
