NEW ORLEANS—A buyout of head coach Les Miles' contract will be quite costly.
A source said today that Miles' contract extends through 2014. The source said Miles' deal was extended thru 2014 in a letter from then chancellor Sean O'Keefe to Miles.
Miles earns $3.751 million per season.
Miles has faced severe criticism this week after LSU mismanaged the clock, again, in a 16-14 win over Tennessee. Tennessee appeared to have won the game after a shotgun snap sailed past quarterback Jordan Jefferson. But, Tennessee was penalized for having 13 men on the field.
Jefferson then tossed the football to Stevan Ridley, who scored from one yard out with no time left on the clock.
