Report: Les Miles Getting A Pretty Nice Raise And Extension, Fans Aren't Thrilled

Everyone likes more money.

Despite the unacceptable notion that LSU did not reach the BCS National Championship Game this past season, head coach Les Miles will receive an extension and a raise, according to CBS Sports.

Miles' salary will rise from $3.75 million per year to $4.3 million per year, and the new contract also offers a two-year extension through 2019. LSU's Board will vote on the proposed contract in early February.

Les Miles is known for his unorthodox approach, but his record speaks for itself. Five of Miles' seven seasons have ended with double digit wins, including a 2007 National Championship. He was, however, heavily criticized for his late-game management in this past season's Chick-fil-A Bowl loss to Clemson.
