LSU Fan Starts Online Fundraiser to Help Buyout Les Miles

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

In some instances, Les Miles has underachieved badly, but with coaches like Jimbo Fisher passing on the job, the question has to be asked about how appealing Baton Rouge is to other top coaches.

After LSU decided to sleepwalk through a 16-14 loss to Wisconsin at Lambeau Field, Tigers fan Andy Denicola created a GoFundMe page to help raise money to cover the head coach’s contract buyout.

I am Andy Denicola and I have suffered through underperforming disappointing season after disappointing season under Les Miles. It’s time for a change. Les Miles is a hard-headed, stubborn, unimaginative, dips–t. He has taken a remarkably talented team and been out coached, out schemed, under developed players and generally lead them to mediocrity over and over again.

Apparently our flagship university can’t afford to buy him out of his contract. So I figured if we raised the money then they wouldn’t have any excuse as to why we can’t fire him. In the likely event that LSU will not accept the funds raised here, all monies will be donated to the Louisiana flood relief effort. Thank you for your support.

LSU extended Miles one season, and it would cost the university $12.9 million if they part ways with him before the end of the 2017 season.
