LSU Working To Finalize New Deal For Miles

A new seven-year contract for LSU football coach Les Miles could be formally approved sometime in September… after first being announced back in January.  The end of the NCAA’s investigation into LSU’s handling of the Akiem Hicks affair should allow the school to now move forward with Miles’ deal.

“Since Les has a contract and a compensation increase will not be forthcoming in an extended contract, haste has not been a concern,” chancellor Michael Martin told The Baton Rouge Advocate.  Miles’ current deal guarantees him more than $3.75 million per year and runs through December of 2012.

If the NCAA investigation into LSU was part of the holdup in inking the new pact, the Tiger brass might want to wait and see if investigators have any more questions regarding Willie Lyles and his ties to Miles’ program.  Just as the door closed on the Hicks affair, it was learned that LSU had recently been visited by the NCAA because of Lyles.
