Miles has been at LSU since 2005, leading the Tigers to the 2007 national title. He played offensive line at Michigan in the mid-1970s and coached the Wolverines line from 1987-1994.
Cameron is also out at LSU. He was Indiana’s head coach from 1997-2001 and Michigan’s WR/QB coach from 1986–1993. Both Miles and Cameron started their careers as graduate assistants with the Wolverines.
Miles has been rumored for the Michigan job several times, most recently after the 2014 season, when Michigan fired Brady Hoke.
