We interrupt your regularly scheduled national title game to bring you an update on Michigan’s search for a new head coach.
Specifically, things appear to be getting very cozy between the school and one of their alumni.
According to a report from WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge, Michigan athletic director David Brandon met with LSU head coach Les Miles at Miles’ Baton Rouge condo Monday evening. It had previously been reported that the two would meet Tuesday in Dallas, and Miles confirmed earlier today that he would be meeting with his former school.
From the report:
Brandon and two other Michigan representatives left the meeting and were taken to Baton Rouge Metro Airport in a Cadillac Escalade, where they were seen boarding Brandon’s Domino’s Pizza plane at 7:40 p.m. The plane left moments later.
The jet, on loan to Brandon, landed in Baton Rouge Monday afternoon fueling speculation that he was on his way to a meeting with Miles.
It’s unclear from the report how long the meeting lasted or if Brandon offered the job to Miles during the course of the meeting.
OK, once again, back to the game…
