LSU giving Les Miles a nice raise

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The proposed new contract for LSU football coach Les Miles calls for an average annual salary increase from $3.751 million to $4.3 million over the seven-year term.

The new deal, which Miles and Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva agreed to in December, will be presented to the LSU Board of Supervisors at its Feb. 1 meeting.

The agreement was reached in December in the immediate aftermath of Arkansas contacting Miles about its then-vacant head coaching position.

LSU, which was ranked No. 1 in one preseason poll, finished No. 14 in the final Associated Press poll after a last-second 25-24 loss to Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31 dropped the Tigers to 10-3.
