Les Miles, always eccentric, frustrating sometimes boring football coach Louisiana and never fired four games in a season of 12, record, the university announced Sunday.
Mile 0.62, was as much a mascot of L.S.U. Football as Mike the Tiger. His most famous obsession with tearing a handful of grass from the grass and eating tiger stadium. But he was also wildly successful,
with an overall record of 114-34, the top five after 10 finishes,
two national championship game, and after the 2007 season, the title and a national one.
But the difference Miles, which has always been made up of many of the best players in the country,
according to the classification of national recruitment and seen, and disappointments, especially during the past two seasons,
when the Tigers finished 8-5 and 9-3.
Alabama and Auburn
One of the rules of fanatical fan of the country grew ran out of patience, Alabama and Auburn, and two division rivals, and won a combined five national titles since L.S.U. Won one.
It seems that the final straw came on Saturday afternoon in the desert. L.S.U.,
who entered the game 2-1 and ranked 18th, followed by 18-13 as the final seconds ticked away,
and seemed to score a dramatic landing on the final green light to play in the game.
But the official review showed that the ball had collapsed after it ended around the clock,
eliminating the outcome, handing Auburn victory and dropping L.S.U. To 2-2.
L.S.U. He said in a statement that Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has been fired,
and that the defense coordinator Ed Orgeron had been offered the post of interim coach.
The news agency said the first time by a lawyer from Baton Rouge.
Acquisitions Miles, a contract that was scheduled to pay him at least $ 4.3 million annually through 2019,
can be up to $ 12.9 million, the United States said last year.
In fact any context, even the bottom of the relative such as those L.S.U.
Pass, it will be considered as acceptable. Teams mi have won nine games or more in nine seasons in spite of playing in the most capable of the college football competition,
Southeast Conference Western division (all those seven head coaches make at least 4 million $ per year), in time, which has dominated the division from Alabama strain unprecedented.
But L.S.U. Hardly any context. The only major conference team in one of the most of the rich countries to recruit in the country, is preparing for the Tigers for excellence.
The fan base for the Tigers, known for tailgates delicious followed by chants of game time intensive, require it.
The mile skating on thin ice for a while. After the 2014 season, L.S.U.
It was unranked. In the past year, the beginning of the unbeaten in the team and the campaign Heisman Trophy front-running running back Leonard Fournette both skidded to a halt in November loss to Alabama,
which began three consecutive defeats.
Before the final in the regular season last year, at home against Texas A & M,
said Miles basically goodbye in a pool for L.S.U. Reinforcement, according to reports.
But Miles retained his position for a little longer by winning that game against A & M,
and then win in the Texas Bowl, and claims several victories on the recruiting trail, where L.S.U.
Scored the third highest rate of employment in the country.
And it identified the Alabama head coach, Nick Saban, a standard views of Miles,
with four national titles in the past seven seasons (and current No. 1 ranking). It was Saban, who led L.S.U.
The first national title for decades, after the 2003 season, and who recruited many record of the stars of the 2007 team that won it for Miles.
Dating back to the national game after the 2011 season,
which closed the crimson tide of tigers from 0.21 to 0, in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans address,
Saban has won the last five meetings with gusto which is a record.
Miles launch – the high cost of this will require and intolerance on what looks like the sustained success that proves – is further evidence that at the top of the college football level,
you can not distinguish it from the N.F.L. In its eagerness to experiment with new trainers in the pursuit of success in the end.
Expansion of the college playoffs for football, and the continuous increase in media rights deals and the presence of all the cable networks dedicated to leagues and one – has raised the alert level sports executives,
- such as the SEC network owned by ESPN, which began two years ago, giving them more money to play with but also raise expectations of return on investment.
To this end, the Tigers might hunt for the brand name, and the coach is expensive.
It is likely that Tom Herman, who include Houston ranked sixth on the all in his second season, and Jamie Fisher, Florida State coach in the major candidates.
