  • Les Miles to be announced as Kansas football coach, per reports

According to a report from Sports Illustrated's Ross Dellenger, former LSU coach Les Miles will be announced as Kansas' head football coach later on Sunday.

"Since the beginning of our search, we focused on identifying and recruiting an experienced head coach with a strong track record of success on and off the field", KU athletics director Long said in a release. KU hired Les Miles to build a football program.

The Jayhawks will be Miles's second Big 12 coaching job.

The Mad Hatter is making his return to college football. Miles was heavily criticized during his final years at LSU for failing to properly adapt his offenses to stay ahead in the SEC West - something that Miles has adamantly said he would rectify if given another chance to coach. If Kansas makes a bowl game, he earns $75,000.

Miles had inherited a victor when he was chosen by LSU to succeed Nick Saban in 2005, but he had proven with Oklahoma State that he could also build a program from scratch. The program had only one winning season since 1988 before Miles' arrival in 2001.

The last time Kansas has won more than three games in a season was 2009 when the Jayhawks were 5-7 in Mark Mangino's last season.

By that point, the program had become the laughingstock of the Big 12.

The Jayhawks were woefully short on scholarship players, their facilities were decrepit, their fanbase had grown apathetic and the even the administration seemed to have little interest in supporting football. Beaty's contract lagged far behind his peers financially, and there was little money at his disposal for hiring assistant coaches and other administrators. And while he used to be an elite coach at an elite program, he hasn't been on the sideline since LSU fired him in September 2016. Current head coach David Beaty will be relieved of his duties after the Jayhawks' season ends on November 23.
