UPDATE: Michigan hires San Diego State head coach Brady Hoke. Hoke was a defensive line assistant coach from 1995-2002.
LSU football coach Les Miles will NOT go to Michigan. U of M Athletic Director Dave Brandon met with Miles last night in Baton Rouge to talk about the vacant coaching position in Ann Arbor. LSU AD Joe Alleva released a statement saying:
“I am pleased to announce that Les Miles will remain the head coach at LSU. 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.”
In his current contract at LSU, Miles had a $1.25 million buyout if he chose to leave to coach at Michigan. Miles led LSU to a National Championship in 2007 but is a Michigan Man playing at the school under Bo Schembechler and also serving as an assistant coach.
