Miles out as Kansas Head Coach

03/09/2021

On Monday, March 8, 2021, breaking news spread across the sports community that Les Miles is no longer the head coach of the Kansas Jayhawks' football team.  Miles has been on the job since 2019.  However, news surfaced about an investigation that had started back in 2013 on Miles having inappropriate relationships with female students.  

Miles had been a head coach at Oklahoma State from 2001 to 2004.  Under his management, the school was under investigation about illegal booster activities and lack of academic standards.  

Then, he became head coach at LSU from 2005 to 2016.  Miles led LSU to a 2007 BCS national championship.  He would be fired in 2016 after losing to Auburn in a 18-13 loss that was progressed by not being able to compete against SEC opponents.  

In Kansas, Miles has not produced a winning atmosphere.  And when the news came out public about several incidents in LSU,  Miles was placed on administrative leave and then later terminated.  Miles' attorney Peter Ginsberg  stated that the decision was "disturbing and unfair."

In today's society, there is no such thing as innocent until proven guilty.  The investigation against Miles started in 2013 and they finally came with a decision that the actions he had done were wrong.  In this business, schools are not taking any chances.  The majority of the workplaces across the nation do not want to deal with scandals or misconducts that would place the work area of investors and employees at risk or attention.  Les Miles could had operated strictly business in Kansas.  However, that past will always haunt those that try to make change for the good.  In other words, you must do right all the time regardless where you work at any given time.
