LOOK: Kansas fans calling for Les Miles after embarrassing loss to FCS Nicholls
Kansas Jayhawks fans have been beaten down a lot over the past decade, but the David Beaty era has taken them to new depths of futility.
In the last three years, the Jayhawks were 3-33 under Beaty, and Year 4 of his tenure didn’t get off to a great start, as Kansas missed out on perhaps its best chance for a win in 2018.
That’s because the Jayhawks fell at home in overtime to FCS foe Nicholls, going down 26-23 to the Colonels.
After watching that terrible performance, many Jayhawk fans took to Twitter to call for their team to hire former LSU head coach Les Miles, who won a national title with the Tigers:
Go get Les Miles, @jefflongKU. That is all

If I’m KU I’m on the phone with Les Miles. Give him whatever he wants. This program needs a big name coach to turn things around.

How do we start a “Les Miles to Kansas” intiative? I’d definitely buy season tickets

KU should just hand Les Miles a blank check and say write down whatever number will get you to move to Kansas and figure out the rest later

@jefflongKU As much as I hate to say it, it’s time to move on from Beaty! Go get Les Miles now while we still can! Jayhawk Nation deserves a quality football program. 4 years and nothing! Growing up going to games we at least competed!

I’m fully onboard the Les Miles for KU train.

I wonder if Les Miles is watching OT of Nicholls State, Kansas game? #KUfball

Miles hasn’t been able to find a job since getting fired during the 2016 season, but would he really want to come to the disaster that is the Kansas program?
After Saturday night’s performance, perhaps new AD Jeff Long should at least give Miles a call.
