Earlier this week, Minnesota fired Tracy Claeys, in part because of his handling of the suspension situation. Claeys tweeted out support for the team’s then-boycott of the Holiday Bowl, as players boycotted the suspension of 10 teammates related to a Title IX investigation of an alleged sexual assault. The boycott ended when the players reportedly read the details of the investigation. Minnesota went 9-4 and beat Washington State in the Holiday Bowl.
Miles was 114-34 as LSU’s coach before getting fired after four games this season. He won the national championship during the 2007 season and played for another national title for the 2011 season.
