Les Miles is no longer with the LSU football program, but alarming details continue to emerge from his time as the head coach. OutKick has continued to provide updates on the story, including a report he was banned from interacting with female students.
Well, all of those surfacing reports has led to his current employer, the Kansas Jayhawks, putting the national title-winning coach on administrative leave. According to Chris Low with ESPN, the university will conduct a full review of the situation.
Kansas athletic director Jeff Long released a statement on Friday night detailing the decision.
“Even though the allegations against him occurred at LSU, we take these matters very seriously at KU,” Long said, via ESPN. “Now that we have access to this information, we will take the coming days to fully review the material and to see if any additional information is available. I do not want to speculate on a timeline for our review because it is imperative we do our due diligence.”
Things are obviously trending in the wrong direction for Miles.
Somehow, the 67-year-old has managed to keep these reports from surfacing. We don’t know how much of this story decision-makers at Kansas did — or didn’t — know, but it only coming to light almost eight years later is troubling.
For now, all we can do is sit and wait to see what the future holds for Miles. In the meantime, new offensive coordinator Mike DeBord will oversee the program in Miles’ absence.
