Denver Writers Connect Miles To Colorado Job

Yesterday we speculated that Colorado might take an interest in Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen, but a pair of Denver columnists think we might have gotten our states mixed up.  Louisiana State’s Les Miles is the man they mention as a possible replacement for Dan Hawkins — who has yet to be fired.

Woody Paige of The Denver Post wrote last week that Miles “could probably be lured to CU.  Miles and LSU have just about had enough of each other, and the coach of the 2007 BCS champions has said to friends that his favorite place to live and coach was Boulder.”  Miles was an assistant at CU under Bill McCartney.

Another Post columnist John Henderson tabbed a number of SEC targets for the Buffaloes.  “I’m told four people are atop the target list: Bill McCartney, Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain, Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn and LSU coach Les Miles.”

According to The Baton Rouge Advocate, Miles wasn’t biting on the speculation.  “Somebody needs to write articles,” he said.  “Somebody needs to mention names.  I’ve got little reaction.”

Ah, but what would be the reaction of Tiger fans?  Would they be sad to see their highly successful coach leave?  Or would they be thrilled for the Mad Hatter to take his mad ways off to the West Coast?

From talking to people in Louisiana, my money’s on the latter.
