Miles Not Looking Elsewhere; No Word On Crowton

Les Miles extricated himself from the hot seat this year with a 10-2 record.  For that reason — and the ginormous salary and buyout he has — he’s not looking to leave Baton Rouge anytime soon.

“I’m not expecting to hear from any other school,” Miles said yesterday.  “I enjoy where I’m at.  I have (been) given reason to enjoy how my family is progressing, enjoy the team I’m fortunate to coach and the school I’m fortunate to represent.  I very much enjoy where I’m at.”

Okay, so what about offensive coordinator Gary Crowton?  “I’ve got to be real honest with you, I don’t want to talk about that.” 


“Endorsement, no endorsement — all those things are really without relevance at this point to me,” Miles said.  “This is about preparing a team for a bowl game, period.  I think our offense has gotten better.  And I think that our team is maturing.”

That’s not much of a vote of confidence is it?

Crowton himself has been rumored to be in the mix for the head coaching job at Louisiana-Lafayette.  But the coach has already ix-nayed that rumor.

“I was never contacted by anyone (from ULL),” Crowton told The New Orleans Times-Picayune.  “I have no interest in that job, and I don’t think they have any interest in me.  I plan on being back at LSU next year.”

In other words, Miles will be back in Baton Rouge in 2011 and Crowton wants to be right alongside him.  Whether he will be or not is all up to Miles. 

And he doesn’t want to talk about that right now.

MSU’s Hudspeth Won’t Interview With La-Lafayette

Mississippi State receiver coach Mark Hudspeth said today that he will not interview for the vacant head coaching position at Louisiana-Lafayette. 

“I am not a candidate and I’m full-speed ahead here,” the coach told Brandon Marcello of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger.

“I’m where I want to be.  Not to say one day down the road a position somewhere wouldn’t interest me, but I’m happy where I’m at.  Recruiting is going great.”

Hudspeth was the head coach North Alabama for seven years before joining Dan Mullen’s staff as State’s passing game coordinator before the 2009 season.

UM’s Masoli Still Questionable

Houston Nutt is still waiting for word that quarterback Jeremiah Masoli can play for his Rebels at Tennessee tomorrow.  He hopes that word will come today.

“I’m hoping (the training staff) can say he’s going to be all right.  That’s what I’m hoping.”

Masoli suffered what Nutt called a “mild concussion” early in last Saturday’s game against Louisiana-Lafayette.  Masoli “vomited some Sunday” — something I never thought we’d write here — but he’s improved as he week has gone on.

For that reason, folks in the Tennessee camp believe Masoli will play.  Derek Dooley hinted on his radio show this week that there could be a bit of gamesmanship going on in this situation.

“I think Masoli’s the guy we’re going to be defending.  I’d be shocked (otherwise).”

If Masoli can’t go, Nathan Stanley will get the start for the Rebels.
