Would Miles head to the Pac-12?
Former LSU head coach Les Miles has kept himself busy this season with his television gig, but you have to figure the “Mad Hatter” will be back on the sideline sooner rather than later.
Miles’ name will likely be linked to a number of open jobs as long as he is a coaching free agent, and a report Monday night connected him with an opening in the Pacific Northwest.
According to the Corvallis Gazette-Times‘ Kevin Hampton, Miles is interested in the coaching vacancy at Oregon State.

Oregon State is traditionally a tough place to recruit and win at, but Miles would lend some gravitas to the program given his resume.
He’s never coached in the Pac-12, though he did spend five years at Colorado in the 1980s, back when the Buffaloes were part of the Big Eight.
The soon-to-be 64-year old Miles owns a 141-55 overall record at Oklahoma State and LSU. He won a national title with the Tigers in 2007.
