LAWRENCE, Kan. No matter who else is hired to a college football head coaching job over the next several weeks, none will come with more fascination than the one introduced by Kansas on Sunday.
Relevancy followed Les Miles to Lawrence and into his news conference. For the first time in a few KU football hires, nobody was asking, Whos he? or Why him?
Miles brings the credibility built on a national championship and 13 of 15 full seasons at LSU and Oklahoma State that ended with a conference record of .500 or better. Kansas owns one winning conference season in 23 Big 12 years.
