Les miles has a rap of not being able to get LSU's offense going that may hurt him some, but he should land somewhere, hopefully other than Oregon. Briles is still poison to schools, his lack of control will follow him for a couple of years then he may land a coordinator job or lower level college head coaching Job.

I think I would rather have Les than the guy UT hired. I don't think UT will be much better under the new guy than they were with Strong.

I agree with this Baylor mess dragging along and more stuff keeps coming out Briles will have to be an OC or maybe go to the NFL as a QB coach.

Houston Reagent Chairman says: Two names believed to have interest are former LSU coach Les Miles and former Baylor coach Art Briles. A person with knowledge of the process said the school plans to contact West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. UH also plans to interview two in-house candidates – interim coach/defensive coordinator Todd Orlando and offensive coordinator Major Applewhite.

"Fertitta said he has received numerous calls from those close to the Baylor program voicing support for Briles.
"There's a lot of administrator and ex administrators and board of regents from Baylor that say that Art Briles was a scapegoat at Baylor," Fertitta said. "I've had calls from ex chairman of the board of regents there, current big booster there, lawyers that represent Baylor. I have not had one negative call about Art Briles. But there still seems to be a clarity issue."

Fertitta also said whoever they go with was going to have a bigger buyout clause.

"Also, Fertitta said the next UH coach's contract will include a hefty buyout over the first couple of years in an effort to keep other schools from poaching.
"I've put it out there, if you want a cheap buyout the first couple years, then don't come apply," he said.
Herman had a $2.5 million buyout.
"There are too many coaches that want this job," Fertitta said. "I'm not going to have a coaching change again after next year or the year after.""

I have a hard time believing Les or Dana would have interest in a team outside the power 5. Art I could see being interested if he doesn't draw any attention from a power 5 school, and he very well may not because what happened at Baylor.

Briles knew the type of players he was bringing in. The kid that raped the soccer player I think his name was Brown he came from Boise ST. The reason Bosie ST let him go is because he assaulted some girls up there but not enough evidence to put him in jail. The coach at Boise ST let other coaches and scouts know what was up with the kid but Briles brought him to Baylor anyways. The Texans coach when he was at Penn ST kicked Oakman off the team for assaulting a girl in a book store it wasn't sexual just assault he is now accused of raping a girl at Baylor.

Him and about a half dozen other athletes are accused. I believe one incident involved 5 athletes. And from what I hear Briles was informed when each rape occurred and did nothing.

Local news says Houston may announce their choice as soon as tomorrow. Won't be W. Va's Dana Halgorsen--he re-committed to W. Va already, with a 5 yr extension and big pay raise..
Oklahoma OC Lincoln Riley supposedly top contender, with Lane Kiffen close behind, then Les Miles as 3rd choice after all have interviewed..
