BATON ROUGE, La. (WGNO) – Will Les Miles coach his last game at LSU on Saturday? According to the Tiger Rag, yes. According to LSU Athletics, no.

On Friday, Miles reportedly indicated to members of the Gridiron Club that Saturday’s matchup between LSU and Texas A&M would be his final game as the Tigers’ head coach. The Tiger Rag says sources who were at the meeting told them Miles made the statement “in an indirect but clear manner.”

The blog also reports, Miles appeared to be in good spirits and reiterated messages that he would “always be a Tiger” and “thanks for a great 11 years.”

Shortly after the article was published online, LSU Football’s official Twitter account denied the rumors.

Miles won two SEC championships, three SEC West titles, and the 2007 BCS National Championship.

Miles’s contract with LSU runs through 2019. If he is in fact fired, LSU will owe him a $15 million buyout.
