Report: LSU coach Les Miles will be fired as early as Sunday
LSU coach Les Miles’ future doesn’t appear to be as the Tigers head coach in Baton Rouge.
The team is poised to fire him as soon as Sunday or Monday, Bruce Feldman reported Thursday during a pregame Fox Sports broadcast.

If the school fired Miles now, it would owe the coach somewhere between $11 and $15 million, depending on how you view his contract. It also would mean there are three open jobs in the SEC — Missouri, South Carolina and LSU.
Just three weeks ago, the Tigers debuted at No. 2 in the College Football Playoff rankings. After three consecutive losses, LSU (7-3) faces Texas A&M with the potential to fall to .500 in the SEC this year, as low as sixth in the SEC West.
The offense continues to struggle, and a vocal segment of the fan base has been calling for change since the team finished 8-5 last season and lost defensive coordinator John Chavis.
Nothing has been made official yet, but it appears change is in the air in Baton Rouge.
