Les Miles Fired As LSU Coach Following Loss To Auburn

LSU has fired coach Les Miles after 12 years at the school. Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was also fired in this overhaul of football leadership in Baton Rouge.

The Tigers have officially promoted defensive coordinator Ed Orgeron as the team’s interim head coach.

The decision came a day after the Tigers’ devastating, last-second 18-13 loss to Auburn.

Athletic director Joe Alleva issued a statement after the news of Miles’ firing broke:

“Decisions like this are never easy ones to make. Coach Miles has done a tremendous job here and he’s been a great ambassador for our University, which makes this even more difficult.”

“However, it’s apparent in evaluating the program through the first month of the season that a change has to be made. Our commitment to excellence and competing at the highest level is unwavering, and our goals for the remainder of this season haven’t changed. We have an obligation to our student-athletes to put them in the best position to have success on the football field each week and we have great confidence that coach Orgeron will do just that.”

Miles was expected to lead a veteran-filled team to a national championship this season, but a 2-2 start this year was his ultimate demise.

He had been in the hot seat since last season, when he was unable to bring back wins to LSU.

Miles ends his tenure at LSU with a 114-34 record, which include three SEC West titles, two SEC titles, a BCS championship and another title game appearance.
