Michigan Reaches Out to Miles

A great deal of attention in Michigan’s coaching search has been focused on former Wolverine standout and current San Francisco 49ers headman Jim Harbaugh. Now some of it may be headed in the direction of another alum of the Maize & Blue.

It took a week, but it finally happened Tuesday evening.

A source speaking to GoBlueWolverine on the condition of anonymity confirmed that Michigan reached out to the agent of LSU coach Les Miles.

The former Michigan player and coach had seen his named mentioned in two prior searches the first of which saw him be mentioned on a national broadcast as having accepted the job. The report proved untrue and over that time Michigan sunk into a sea of inconsistency while Miles led his Tiger program four top five finishes including a national championship (2007) and national champion runner-up (2011), another finish in the top 10 and three more in the top 20 before this year.

There’s no official word yet as to whether Miles has or will reciprocate his alma mater’s interest.
