Writer says Les Miles is safe but these LSU coordinators could be on the way out

Les Miles won’t be fired, at least not this season but coordinators Cam Cameron and Bradley Dale Peveto could be seeking employment elsewhere next year, according to’s Jim Kleinpeter.

No. 9 LSU has lost its last two games, after winning its first seven and Kleinpeter writes it could lead to the Tigers (7-2, 4-2 SEC) dismissing their offensive and special teams coordinators, especially if LSU can’t win one of its last two games, as well as its bowl game:

I don’t see anything happening to Miles after this season with a contract through 2019. It’s too expensive to fire him but it’s possible Joe Alleva pressures him to make some staff changes. Cam Cameron’s contract is up after this season and although Brandon Harris is better, he seems to have regressed in the last two games. He had a wide open receiver on the first play and threw the ball short, hitting a defender in the back of the head.

Kevin Steele has two year’s left and deserves more time but LSU is going to have serious personnel issues on defense next year and the depth in the front 7 isn’t good. Alleva may also ask Miles to dump Bradley Dale Peveto, whose special teams have had at least one major gaffe every week. If LSU loses out and goes 7-4, something will happen. Les needs to at least split the last two and win the bowl game to prevent having to make changes.

LSU will try to avoid going 7-4 and get win No. 8 against Ole Miss Saturday, when the teams kickoff at 3:30 p.m. EST Saturday on CBS.
