Kansas is finalizing a contract to make Les Miles its next football coach, according to a report from Sports Illustrateds Ross Dellenger.
Miles, who turned 65 on Saturday, is best known for his 12-year tenure at LSU from 2005-16, where he went 114-34 overall and won a national championship in 2007.
Dellenger reported that Miles and KU have been negotiating this week. On Thursday, LSU announced a $1.5 million buyout settlement with Miles that officially closed out his previous contract with the school. CBS Sports also reported KU and Miles were finalizing a deal.
