Could Les Miles join Jim Harbaugh at Michigan?

On Saturday, LSU lost 18-13 to Auburn, sealing the fate for Les Miles just four games into his 12th season as head coach in Baton Rouge.

LSU players were notified on Sunday that Miles had been fired, along with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, and that defensive line coach Ed Orgeron will serve as the interim head coach.

So, the question now is, where will Miles land? Will he take the rest of the season off or will he be picked up by another college before the conclusion of the 2016 season?

One school that could consider adding Miles to their staff is the University of Michigan. On Monday, Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh commented on the Miles firing, noting that he would be speaking to him.

“I have the utmost respect for Les, for coach Miles and Cam,” Harbaugh said. “I haven’t talked to him yet, but I hope to soon.”

Miles history with the Michigan program is well documented and he has been rumored to become their head coach on multiple occasions. He played offensive line for the Wolverines from 1974-1975 and also served as OL coach from 1987-1994.

When asked if he would consider bringing Miles back as an analyst or an honorary captain, Harbaugh had an interesting response.

“Those are good suggestions,” Harbaugh said.

In his 12 seasons as head coach at LSU, Miles posted a 114-34 overall record. He also led the Tigers to three first place finishes in the SEC West and won a National Championship with the team in 2007.

What do you think, Nation? Should Harbaugh bring Miles back to the Michigan program?
