Mike Riley hasn’t even been fired and everyone is speculating about who will be Nebraska’s next head coach.
While it’s likely that the Huskers will be searching for a new leader at the end year, it has been interesting to see just how many names have been attached with taken over in Lincoln. One of those names is Les Miles.
The former LSU head coach is just one of the people expected to be in the running for the head coaching job, should it be available. But Miles says nobody has spoken with him about the possible job, putting that rumor to bed pretty quickly.
“Well, no one has ever asked me, period,” Miles told Land of 10. “So I kind of like that way. I think that’s the best way to go.
“One thing about me is, I’m a coach and I’m rooting for coaches. And I [understand] how difficult it is to win, and I want the team that deserves to win to win…and I want fairness. But I don’t necessarily point at coaches that I want to lose. That is not how I feel.”
Miles has been out of the coaching business since he was fired by LSU midway through the 2016 season. He’s currently serving as a college football analyst. But his name has surfaced with plenty of potential jobs, including Nebraska.
But apparently nobody from Lincoln has reached out to Miles, at least not yet.
