LSU coach talks about it
IRVING, Texas (AP) - LSU coach Les Miles says he has had no
contact from Michigan about becoming the coach at his alma mater.
Miles said Wednesday, before Michigan fired coach Rich
Rodriguez, that he was focused on preparing his 11th-ranked Tigers
for the Cotton Bowl on Friday night against 18th-ranked Texas A&M.
During a Cotton Bowl news conference, Miles said he was there to
"speak about LSU." The former Wolverines player and assistant
coach said "Michigan will be fine. They'll always be Michigan."
Miles was considered a leading candidate at Michigan when Lloyd
Carr resigned three years ago. But Miles held an unusual press
conference hours before the 2007 Southeastern Conference
championship game saying he intended to stay at LSU.
