Les Miles will not be Michigan's next coach. He has agreed to a multi-year extension, which he has yet to sign, to remain at Louisiana State.
Miles angrily denounced an earlier ESPN report — by Kirk Herbstreit — that he was going to take the Michigan job.
After Michigan asked for and received permission earlier in the week to talk with Miles, LSU summoned George Bass, the coach's Dallas-based agent, to Baton Rouge. It was reported that LSU was prepared to offer Miles a deal in the $3.5 million a year range, a significant bump from his current deal of $1.8 million. Michigan was reportedly willing to go no higher than $3 million, so it's going to be interesting to see how much Miles will get under the new contract.
