Kansas "Mutually Parting Ways" with Les Miles

 

The University of Kansas and football head coach Les Miles are "mutually parting ways" amid sexual misconduct allegations from when he was the head coach at LSU.

 

Miles said in a statement, "I love this university and the young men in our football program. I truly enjoyed being the head coach at KU and know that it is in a better place now than when I arrived."

 

Miles coached the Jayhawks for just two seasons and only won three games in his tenure.

 

As for Athletic Director Jeff Long, he will begin another search for a head football coach. Long said in a statement, "I am extremely disappointed for our university, fans and everyone involved with our football program. There is a lot of young talent on this football team, and I have no doubt we will identify the right individual to lead this program." 

 

KU has not won four or more games since 2009 and they haven't won a road Big 12 conference game since 2008. The Jayhawks are coming off their third winless season in the program's history and their second since 2012.
