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.
"I want to make it clear that Les Miles is our football coach and will continue to be our football coach," #LSU AD Joe Alleva said.

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.
So…why did #LSU want to get rid of Les Miles again? 111-32 record, 8 top-20 finishes and a national title in 11 seasons. Keep him..duh

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