For the last two weeks it appeared that LSU football coach Les Miles would be fired at any moment. However, following their win Saturday night a surprise announcement took place.

Not only had word leaked out in recent weeks that the school would buy out the remainder of his contract, but that boosters had stepped forward to provide the money to make it happen. Les Miles himself said this week that last nights game against Texas A&M would likely be his last with the Tigers.

LSU went out and beat the Aggies 19-7 and a complete change took place with regard to his position. Miles was told after the game that he could keep his job by university officials. ESPN is reporting that sources indicated that the final decision was not made until the end of the third quarter of Saturday's game.

Miles has won a national championship during his 11 years with the Tigers and has compiled a record of 111-32.
