Updated odds suggest Les Miles in play for Notre Dame and Texas jobs
Former LSU head man Les Miles has made it clear he intends to return to the sidelines as a head coach as soon as next season. In a recent interview, Miles admitted he is evaluating coordinators to potentially join him at his next stop.
While Miles did not reveal any of the names on his list, the former LSU coach had a knack for hiring coordinators – names like John Chavis, Jimbo Fisher and Dave Aranda immediately come to mind. According to the latest odds from BookMaker.eu, Miles may have his choice of any elite assistants this offseason given the schools rumored to be in play for Miles.
According to these odds, Miles is currently one of the best bets to land at both Texas and Notre Dame. In fact, Miles has better odds to be the head coach at the start of the 2017 season than both sitting coaches Charlie Strong and Brian Kelly. Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen also made the list as a potential candidate with the Fighting Irish.
