    Miles: I'm LSU coach, not a candidate at Michigan

    Miles: I'm LSU coach, not a candidate at Michigan

    And the saga continues...

    "I had a conversation with Michigan last week that covered a wide range of topics. I was doing nothing more than helping them with their search for a football coach, just as any loyal alumnus might do. It was nothing more than that," Miles said.

    Les Miles says he spoke with officials at Michigan -- but only to advise his alma mater on its continuing search for a coach.

    "I'm not a candidate for that job and I will not be a candidate for the job. I was only assisting them in their search for a coach," he added. "I have a great job at a wonderful place, a place that my family calls home. It's time that Michigan goes on with their search for a football coach."

    "I'll say it again, I'm going to be the coach at LSU next season."

    The longer the Michigan "search" goes on...the more likely it is that they are waiting for Miles to finish the National Championship game.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I totally agree. What is Michigan waiting for, if it's not Les Miles? I also find it interesting/odd that they have had no recruits back out.

    Didn't Bobby Petrino say a similar thing right before the MNF game earlier this week?

    I still maintain that until Michigan hires a coach, Miles is the leading candidate regardless of what he says publicly.

    There is no way though that UM is telling recruits that they are hiring or want to hire Miles. No way would kids keep that a secret. My guess is that kids committing to UM know they are going to be in a good position to play for the B10 title every year so they aren't overly concerned with who the HC ends up being.

    Q: How do you know when a coach is lying to the press?

    A: His mouth is moving.

    On Rome yesterday, he played the audio clip of Nick Saban firmly saying no to Alabama.....but then he showed the world he only cares about money.

    I didn't say anyone was telling recruits that Michigan was going to hire Miles. I just thought it was interesting, in comparison to programs like Nebraska where recruits were bailing out, that zero recruits were wavering.

    My bad...I read into your post! I agree about that though...what would a kid be committing to? I guess the block M...not really a bad thing to committ to.

    Re: Miles: I'm LSU coach, not a candidate at Michigan

    I would think OSU would enjoy Miles going to Michigan. When fighting over recruits - they would just need to pull out some of the clips of Miles saying he's going to be at LSU next year.

    At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if a pro coach went to Michigan.
