ESPNews at about 2:40 p.m. read a statement from LSU coach Les Miles
in regard to a Detroit Free Press report Monday that the Michigan athletic
director and president had talked to Miles last Friday, a day after Miles
signed a contract extension with LSU. He said he had a conversation with
Michigan last week covering a wide range of topics: "I was doing nothing
more than helping them with a search for a football coach as any loyal
alumnus might do. It was nothing more than that. I am not
a candidate for that job."
