LSU Coach Les Miles Punted Out of Tiger Stadium

LSU fires head coach Les Miles

LSU coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron have reportedly been fired.

According to sources… defensive line coach Ed Orgeron has been offered the interim coaching position.

Miles’ Tigers are 2-2 this season after entering the season with a No. 5 ranking. Miles, who had been at LSU since 2005, was nearly fired after last season when No. 2 LSU suffered three consecutive losses near the end of the season. LSU’s regular season finale, a win over Texas A&M, is considered to have saved his job.
