Les Miles indicates Saturday's game will be last as LSU coach

Les Miles' final hurrah with LSU appears to be taking place Saturday, according to a media report.

Speaking Friday to the LSU Gridiron Club, a booster organization, Miles indicated that the Tigers' game against Texas A&M will be his last with the program.

"He didn't use those words, but he made it clear that Saturday is his last game," one Gridiron club member told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Miles said he would not be coaching the bowl game, according to the report, and did not stay to answer questions.

"He said, 'We're a second family to him and he's going to miss us, he appreciates his real friends, and then he told us goodbye,'" the source said. "It was very emotional but in control."

ESPN's Joe Schad reported Tuesday that an announcement on Miles' future will "most likely" come sometime after Saturday's game.

The exit comes with LSU (7-3, 4-3 SEC) sitting midpack in its conference for the fourth straight season. Miles' job status has been in question for more than a week, and speculation has intensified with LSU in the middle of the program's first three-game losing streak since 1999.

Miles has won two SEC titles and one national championship since becoming LSU coach in 2005. He has won 77.5 percent of his games at LSU, the best winning percentage for any coach in the modern era of LSU football.
