Per ESPN’s Joe Schad, LSU administrators will most likely make a decision on head coach Les Miles’ job status after the conclusion of their Saturday matchup against Texas A&M.
There have been several reports out saying that boosters are prepared to buyout Miles and move on to a new head coach after the Tigers dropped three in a row in SEC play.
Here are the details from ESPN:
An announcement on LSU coach Les Miles’ future with the program will “most likely” come sometime after the Tigers’ final regular-season game Saturday, a source said Tuesday.
LSU’s decision-makers are focused on analyzing not just the potential separation with Miles, but also whom they might be able to hire. One name that has been discussed as a possible replacement is Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, a former LSU assistant.
On Monday, a high-ranking source involved in the decision regarding the coach’s future told ESPN there is “a very good possibility” that LSU will buy out Miles’ contract.
It seems almost like a given at this point that LSU will be in the market for a new head coach after the regular season concludes, and the most buzz seems to be around Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher. We won’t have to wait much longer to see how things play out in Baton Rouge, but the writing seems to be on the wall at this point.
