Could former LSU head coach Les Miles be heading back to the Big Ten? It looks like it is a real possibility at this point.
According to USA Today’s Dan Wolken, Purdue reportedly has their eye on Miles, as the Boilermakers could be close to parting ways with current head coach Darren Hazzell.
This would clearly be a step down from LSU, but Wolken follows up on his report with some blunt news: not many teams are in the market for a 62-year old head coach that just got fired.
The would be another foray into the Big Ten for Miles, who has previously played and coached at Michigan. If the Purdue job doesn’t happen, there is always a chance that Miles goes back to Michigan as an assistant or analyst.
