Rumors have circulated about Les Miles’ job status recently, but LSU’s head coach says he hasn’t discussed them with any of his players.

“I don’t necessarily use coaches issues as reason to visit with these guys,” Miles told the Times-Picayune after practice Wednesday. “I have not really addressed, nor do I think I will. We have many more important things to address in a game week.”

The rumors have sprung up after back-to-back losses to No. 2 Alabama and Arkansas, arguably the conference’s two hottest teams right now.

LSU started the season 7-0 and climbed as high as No. 2 in the College Football Playoff rankings, but lost 30-16 to Alabama and 31-14 to Arkansas, and fell to No. 15 in this week’s rankings. That started the speculation about Miles’ job security.

There has also been speculation about offensive coordinator Cam Cameron’s future in Baton Rouge amidst the LSU offense’s recent struggles. Cameron’s contract is up at the end of the season.

“I haven’t done a lot of work on contracts I’m considering this season,” he said. “I generally wait until the season is over. It wouldn’t be unusual at all (to sign after the season) when his contract is over.”

The Tigers (7-2) face No. 22 Ole Miss (7-3) on Saturday in Oxford, Miss. The game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
