Michigan has been given permission by LSU to talk with Les Miles after the SEC Championship game about the head coaching job at Michigan. I am excited about this for several reasons.
1) I believe that Michigan should hire a Michigan Man and Les Miles is, he played for and coached for the University. Plus, he has said it would be his dream job.
2) Michigan needs to upgrade it’s program like OSU and MSU has, and I believe Les is the best person for that task.
3) Les has found coaching success in two top tier conferences in the NCAA, the Big 12 and SEC. And the fact that he has found success in the best conference (SEC) in college football is a plus. The SEC has kicked the Big Ten’s butt long enough, so it is time we get one of their best to help us out.
4) From a purely financial point of view this makes sense. You need to keep filling seats and Les will bring that buzz that can help continue that. Especially with the new addition. So, Bill Martin, do what it takes to get him.
