Les Miles is the head coach of Louisiana State University.

Les Miles attended the University of Michigan where he was a two year letterman under Coach Bo Schembechler from 1974 to 75. In 1980, Miles returned to Michigan as an assistant coach to Schembechler. He left Michigan in 1982 to coach at the University of Colorado where fellow Michigan assistant Bill McCartney had just been named head coach.

He returned to Michigan in 1987 as an assistant coach under Gary Moeller where he helped lead the team to eight consecutive winning seasons and bowl appearances, including four Rose Bowl appearances. After Gary Moeller's resignation, Miles left Michigan again to join former Colorado assistant Bob Simmons staff at Oklahoma State as offensive coordinator.

Miles was considered for the coaching job at the University of Michigan after the firing of Rich Rodriguez in 2011, but chose not to pursue the position. [1]
