There is a lot of speculation concerning the job security of Les Miles’ at LSU. Tiger Rag Editor Cody Worsham says athletic director Joe Alleva has not commented on Miles’ future but his silence is telling.
“All Joe Alleva would have to do at this point is come out and say that Les Miles is on board for next season and that they’re sticking with him. So far, despite all the reports, to the contrary nothing has been said from LSU.”
Miles’ contract runs until 2019. Worsham says coming off of the Tigers three game losing streak, it’s pretty clear to him that Miles’ job is in jeopardy. But he doesn’t believe there is any rush to get rid of Miles just yet.
“I think before Alleva makes any decision, he’ll want to have all his ducks in a row and know where he’s going next. I wouldn’t expect a decision anytime soon but it’s college football and it’s LSU, you never know what you’re going to get.”
Worsham says Miles’ 15 million dollar buyout isn’t much of a determining factor because those who want him gone are willing to front that money.
“The key there is that none of that money will be coming from the university, it would be raised privately from a few private donors and those private donors are willing to pay.”
