Decision on Les Miles was made in third quarter

After last night’s 19-7 win over Texas A&M, LSU athletic director Joe Alleva announced that Les Miles would continue to be the team’s head coach going into the future. It was pretty apparent that Miles would be out following the game, but after the outpouring of support for him, the decision was changed very quickly.

Up until the third quarter of the game, Miles was out. He was going to be fired after the game, but according to ESPN’s Joe Schad, the decision makers had a meeting during the game and decided otherwise.

Schad also reported that when the team carried Miles off the field, that is when they made their final decision.

It was certainly a messy situation, but it certainly ended up working for Miles and the Tigers in the end.
