LSU athletics: Les Miles plans to remain LSU's head football coach, university says
Les Miles, who spoke with Michigan officials on Monday, will remain the LSU football coach, Louisiana State officials announced today.
"I am pleased to announce that Les Miles will remain the head coach at LSU," said LSU athletic director Joe Alleva. "Les has led this program to many great successes on the field and his players represent LSU well off the field. We look forward to many great years of LSU football under his leadership."
LSU said Miles will conduct a press conference when he returns from the American Football Coaches Association convention in Dallas.
Miles, who has coached six seasons at LSU, is a former Michigan player and assistant coach. He spoke briefly on Monday about Michigan's interest in him in the wake of firing Rich Rodriguez last week.
"I am extremely happy here," Miles said.
