LSU giving Miles raise, extension
Les Miles has a new seven-year contract at LSU that also will result in a pay raise for one of the most successful coaches in the history of the Tigers' football program.

''I'm a LSU head coach and will be a LSU head coach for as long as I can be,'' Miles said Wednesday. ''Hopefully, we'll look up seven years from now and I'll be looking for another seven-year extension.''

The new contract runs through 2019, which amounts to a two-year extension. LSU athletic director Joe Alleva said financial details were still being worked out and will be released after LSU plays in a still-undecided bowl game to close out this season.

A person familiar with the contract said that Miles' new annual pay would be in the range of $4.3 million. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial details of Miles' deal were not released.

Re: LSU giving Miles raise, extension
Are you guys satified with the job Miles has done for LSU thus far? I mean hasnt LSU usually been serious threats in the most vicious conference the NCAA has to offer during his tenure? I cant blame Miles for entertaining offers, no more than I would an NFL player putting up top ten numbers, and asking for a new deal.

Re: LSU giving Miles raise, extension
There is a "Love - Hate - Love" relationship with Les.

The faults I have in him are:

1a. Losing to Ole Miss (Clock mis-management game)

1b. The whole Jordan Jefferson deal

2. Jordan Jefferson

3. Playing Jordan Jefferson the entire BCS NC game.

I really think he is a good coach. I'm glad we have him. However, his hardheadedness is his down fall, sometimes.

Re: LSU giving Miles raise, extension
the whole Jefferson ordeal was handled poorly by him. Never did hear what the whole story there was.
