LSU coach Les Miles vehemently labeled a report from ESPN this morning that
he was headed to Michigan as "misinformation" and says he will remain at LSU.
His statements came at an impromptu news conference in Atlanta only a couple of
hours before LSU's game against Tennessee for the SEC Championship. On ESPN's
College GameDay sometime after 9 this morning, Kirk Herbstreit reported that
Miles is expected to be named head coach at Michigan. Miles' angry-man video is on ESPN.com. "I am the head coach at LSU. I will be the head coach at LSU,"
Miles said. "I am excited about the opportunity of my damn strong football team
to play" in the SEC Championship Game. He ended by telling reporters he would
take no questions. "Please ask me after, I'm busy now, thank you very much, have
a great day."
More ESPN coaching buzz
ESPN has previously said that Bo Pelini, the LSU defensive coordinator,
would be named head coach at Nebraska. That means Turner Gill, the former Fort
Worth Arlington Heights quarterback and former Nebraska QB and former
longtime Huskers assistant, lost out on that job. But ESPN reports that Gill's
name has come up at Washington State, which dumped Bill Doba after the
season. Gill this week was named MAC Coach of the Year after guiding Buffalo to
a 5-7 record.
