Kansas Puts Les Miles On Leave Following LSU Behavior Coming To Light

Videos by OutKick

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.

    • Even if ousted — which is doubtful in the People’s Republic of New York — Reichsfuhrer Cuomo will find a safe landing, either on the Communist News Network or in the Xiden Administration.

    • If a grown man in a position of authority is prohibited from being around young females, it is a harrassment issue of a very serious kind.

      Do women ever do anything bad? Would you like to me start posting how many female teachers sexually exploit young, male students? How about mothers who kill their children? How about women who cry rape falsely and destroy men’s lives and reputations? Feelin’ better?

      • Joss Whedon is a VERY recent example of that prohibition coming to light.

        But yes positions of authority, be it male or female, can produce corrupting actions. And unlike anarchists/feminists/usurpers who think the answer is to destroy all authority because it exploited people…I’d prefer we get back to having morality be a part of leadership.

  1. I’m guessing that’s code for Les, let’s start negotiating your departure.

    Either Kansas knew about this and made a bad decision hiring him or he lied in the interview process. I’m sure at some point they asked Les, any skeletons in the closet going to bite us in the ass?

    • What Kansas Football and Indiana Basketball had in common during their success was a coach that abused their players.

      Granted at least Bobby Knight kept his weight in the not morbidly obese category.

  2. Great awakening continues be it what happens in the dark from these Hollywood producers, high ranking coaches in sports, clergyman, or politicians. You can’t keep the abuse of authority down forever.

    Shoot I know he said he want to coach high school football…but I’d seriously look into Philip Rivers in the future for a college coaching hire.
