Yesterday, Miles settled with his former school Louisiana State University for $1.5 Million of his remaining $6 Million contract. That settlement further frees Miles up to pursue a head coaching job elsewhere this offseason.

Kansas Athletic Director Jeff Long and Les Miles worked together at the University of Michigan in the 1980s.

Current Kansas Head Coach David Beaty was terminated two weeks ago, but allowed to finish the season with the Jayhawks.
