Les Miles is once again making the wrong kind of headlines. On Sunday, it was reported by the Kansas City Star that after a Kansas player told coaches of being threatened by teammates, KU reached a confidential settlement with the player, paying him $50,000 to leave the school.
The report has made Miles a trending topic on Twitter. Users of the social media platform are shredding Miles, calling his KU tenure a disaster. Some users are wondering what else might have gone on at LSU when Miles was head coach of the Tigers. Findings from an investigation at LSU, including Miles’ alleged treatment of female employees, led to his dismissal as KU’s head coach earlier this year.
Here’s a small sample of what’s being said about Miles:
Les Miles did all this crap for a team that didn’t win a single game last season. He definitely helped bury some bodies at LSU. 😭😭😭😭😭

Les Miles really went from “lovable goofball” to “scum of the Earth” in record time. https://t.co/HhpJEudM5c

Given everything that proceeded it, it’s remarkable that the Les Miles era of Kansas Football will go down as the most incompetent. https://t.co/p6lvRsfki4

This is basically Les Miles formally applying for the Liberty head coaching position next time it becomes available. https://t.co/29QTOdKQlW

Soooo yeah. No one in that KU athletic department should ever be employed by a university again. Especially Les Miles. https://t.co/7vVMZT1qWZ

This is excellent reporting and extremely damaging to what was left of Les Miles’ reputation. https://t.co/nywKIOSF6z

Some other college football coaches may have gone from quirky oddball to essentially unemployable faster than Les Miles, but Les has gotten there without stopping for a bathroom break or snacks.

That’s not happening again any time soon.
