LSU Football: Sources Report That Les Miles Will Stay with Tigers

According to two sources close to the LSU football program (per The Times-Picayune and NOLA.com's Randy Rosetta), head coach Les Miles will remain with the Tigers.

Earlier, The Times-Picayune reported, citing a source, that Arkansas had offered Miles a five-year, $27.5 million offer. An unnamed source told ESPN on Wednesday that there has been mutual interest between Miles and Arkansas, although a deal likely will not happen.

Now, with LSU waiting to hear its postseason bowl destination and Arkansas sent home early after a disappointing 4-8 season, it is looking more and more like this deal will not happen.

Miles has compiled an 85-20 record since arriving at LSU back in 2005. That includes three BCS appearances, one of which resulted in a National Championship victory in 2007.

As wacky as "The Mad Hatter" has been at times during his LSU coaching days, he is simply not crazy enough to bolt for another SEC foe.
