And, it’s on.
Earlier today, LSU athletic director Joe Alleva issued a statement saying he has “not been contacted by anyone from the University of Michigan about Les Miles.”
That apparently is about to change.
ESPN.com‘s Joe Schad is reporting that Michigan has expressed an interest in interviewing Miles and that the interview is expected to take place. It’s unclear when the interview would actually happen.
One source told Schad that Miles, who has just a $1.25 million buyout if he were to leave for the Ann Arbor school, would give LSU 24 hours notice before interviewing; that notification has not yet happened. Another source said that Miles would be very interested in speaking to athletic director David Brandon.
If it goes down as reported, Miles would become the first known candidate to interview for the Michigan job since it came open last week.
