Les Miles has been connected to several jobs since he was fired by LSU last season. It now looks like another school has jumped on that bandwagon.
Corvallis Gazette-Times’ Kevin Hampton is reporting that Miles has interest in the currently open job at Oregon State.
Oregon State head coach Gary Anderson was let go a month ago by the school, and several high-profile head coaches have been connected to the school since then. That includes former UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel and recently departed Florida coach Jim McElwain.
In a recent interview with Yahoo!’s Pete Thamel, Miles wasn’t shy about the fact that he had interviewed for several positions ever since he was let go by LSU. Miles said in the same interview that he also hopes to go to a school that can contend for a conference championship. While that would be difficult at Oregon State, it certainly wouldn’t be impossible.
Miles has a 113-34 career record as a head coach, having coached at both Oklahoma State and LSU. Miles’ LSU team won the BCS national championship in 2007, and lost in the BCS national championship game in 2011. Miles never won less than eight games in a full season while at LSU, and his teams won over 10 games in seven of the 12 years he was in Baton Rouge.
Miles is currently working as an analyst for FOX Sports.
