Report: During his LSU days, Les Miles offered settlement to student intern without school's knowledge
Now that investigators are digging into any and all allegations that have surfaced at LSU over the years regarding sexual misconduct and/or domestic violence complaints, an interesting discovery has reportedly been made.
If you were unaware, the school and the Husch Blackwell law firm are currently investigating LSU’s history of dealing with allegations of sexual misconduct and domestic violence. Now that this investigation is ongoing, some interesting details have begun to leak.
According to The Advocate, who cites multiple sources, Les Miles reached a settlement with a former LSU student intern that accused the coach of harassment. Miles has denied that he ever made advances to any student interns during his time at LSU but would not comment when asked about this settlement.
LSU denies having any knowledge of this settlement and notes if Miles did offer a student intern a deal. “LSU is not a party to it and we have not seen it,” Vice President of Strategic Communications Jim Sabourin said to The Advocate.
The results of LSU’s investigation into the football program are expected to be delivered in the weeks to come.
The investigation comes following a USA Today report issued in November detailing several allegations against the football program dating back to the Miles era and extending into Ed Orgeron’s time as head coach.
