Les Miles on the Michigan football opening: 'We will speak at a time and place that hasn't been identified'
LSU coach Les Miles said he will meet with Michigan officials to discuss the school’s head football coach position.
The coach, a former Michigan player and assistant coach, did not say where or when that meeting would take place, but multiple reports said it would take place Tuesday.
To this point, Miles said, neither he nor his representatives had spoken to Michigan officials.
“If anything, we have a very distant conversation with representatives that would represent the school,” he said. “I’m told we will speak at that time in a place that has not been identified, and it’s hard to for me to speculate to the substance of that meeting.”
Earlier in the day, Miles had told members of the Tigers that he wanted to return to Baton Rouge and that his family was comfortable there.
His agent, George Bass, could not be reached for comment.
“I am extremely happy here,” Miles said during a press conference called to announce that LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson had declared for the NFL Draft.
“ I don’t know that there’s anything more to say. There’s no information that I have (other) than what I have just shared with you.”
