Another abysmal season of football has struck the Kansas Jayhawks, but the program has finally found a worthy candidate that can revitalize them in Les Miles.

While the announcement of Miles to the Jayhawks was quite surprising, it makes tons of sense. His time at LSU didn't end on great terms, yet that doesn't erase his countless seasons of winning at an impressive clip.

Miles could be the savior that Kansas football needs, but it'll cost the university a hefty amount.

Sports Illustrated's Ross Dellenger tweeted out the terms of Miles' contract, saying it'll be approximately a five-year deal, worth $14 million.

The LSU Tigers reached a $1.5 million buyout last week with Miles.

Considering that the Jayhawks haven't been solid since 2008, spending on a championship-winning coach is worth the investment.

Entering the 2018 season, Kansas won just three games over the past three seasons. With the team residing in the Big-12, constantly losing simply isn't acceptable.

The pressure will be on for Miles to establish a winning culture at Kansas. If his coaching abilities haven't declined over the past few years, he'll be more than capable of handling the Jayhawks.
