LSU fired Miles two years ago as the Tigers struggled to meet expectations. But his ability to transform a program is unquestioned, and his resume is peppered with superlatives, including a national championship (2007).
Twitter exploded with reactions to the news that Miles is reportedly headed to Kansas.
