Is Les Miles Coming Back to the SEC?
According to multiple sources, former LSU head coach Les Miles is extremely interested in the Ole Miss coaching job. Hugh Freeze resigned from the Rebels Thursday after reports surfaced that Freeze used a school issued phone to call an escort service.
Miles reportedly contacted officials at Ole Miss about the job as soon as the news about Freeze broke.
According to Bleacher Report's Brad Shepard, Miles is one of eight coaches who could realistically take over the job right now and be successful. He says:
Coaching Ole Miss would give Miles the opportunity to stick it to the Tigers every single year for that, and while a lot of Rebels fans would be skeptical and maybe even angry at the hire, all it would take would be a single win over LSU to turn those frowns around.
It would be hard for [Ole Miss athletic director Ross] Bjork to do better than this.
Miles would arrive with plenty of experience in the SEC after he spent 11.5 years with the LSU Tigers. During that time, he compiled a 114-34 record and won a National Championship.
