Les Miles has had a good run, but it appears his time in Baton Rouge has come to a humbling end. The Advocate is reporting that Miles has been fired as the LSU Tigers head football coach.
This comes after reports that school officials were meeting to discuss the coach's future.
The Advocate is reporting that high ranking LSU officials are currently meeting, discussing the state of the program and the future of everyone on the staff, including the head coach.
University leaders are expected to enter deep discussions in the next 24 hours regarding the future of the football program, its head coach and its offensive coordinator, a source close to LSU athletics told The Advocate on Sunday.
An extensive evaluation of the program, normally reserved for after the season, is unfolding in Baton Rouge after the Tigers, ranked No. 5 in the preseason, dropped to 2-2 and fell out of The Associated Press poll following a sloppy 18-13 loss Saturday at Auburn.
Changes to the staff — particularly regarding head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron — could be coming as early as Monday.
High-ranking members of the Tiger Athletic Foundation and members of the LSU Board of Supervisors declined comment when contacted since the Auburn game ended. LSU athletic director Joe Alleva, in a text message Saturday night, refuted that any meeting was planned Sunday.
Ross Dellenger is reporting that defensive coach Ed Oregon would assume the role as interim coach.
Miles has an overall record of 114-34 and a winning percentage of 77 percent in Baton Rouge, but is inability to develop a quarterback or keep up with Alabama has sealed his fate.
