College Football Rumors: Arkansas Preparing Offer for Les Miles?
The Arkansas Razorbacks have been the focal point of the majority of college football rumors over the past few days. Every first-tier coach with a pulse has been mentioned as a potential replacement for the recently dismissed John L. Smith.
ESPN analyst Jon Gruden and Boise State fixture Chris Petersen are two of the more notable candidates, but certainly do not take a back-seat to this afternoon’s rumor.
According to the following tweet from a site known for having good sources, Les Miles is in the Razorbacks’ sights:
A five-year, $27.5 million deal would certainly be enough to make Miles’ ears perk up, if true, but the pure logistics of this move seem highly unlikely. After all, why in the world would Miles want to leave a program in Baton Rouge that he has built into a national power and perennial National Championship contender for one in Fayetteville that is mired in uncertainty?
As this tweet puts it, let’s consider the context:
Those who cover Arkansas are already doing their due diligence:
If Les Miles even considers talking to Arkansas about their opening–much less considers leaving LSU for the Razorbacks–I will have officially seen it all.
Given that the aforementioned Grand Canyon State is about to be a Division I school, however, I guess nothing should really surprise me anymore.
