After Saturday’s embarrassing loss at Auburn, Miles seemed destined to end up being fired at some point this season, but to see it happen this quick would be a major surprise. The only logical reason to do so would be to ensure LSU gets the best chance to target their next head coach and hire him as soon as possible.
That will obviously be hard if said coach is currently at another program right now. Unless it’s a coordinator, it’s hard to see LSU announcing a hire anytime soon, even if they do zone in on who they want to be their next football coach.
Oh, and Miles is now about to become a free agent...
