LSU Coach Les Miles has an offer from Arkansas for the head football coaching job, a source close to LSU confirmed to the Times-Picayune/NOLA.com Tuesday. The offer is reportedly for five years and $27.5 milliion.

"They made a serious offer," the source said "(Athletic Director) Joe (Alleva) is meeting with his (Miles') agent and the discussion is ongoing."
LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette declined to comment and said Miles, was out of town recruiting. His LSU team defeated Arkansas 20-13 in the regular season finale Friday.

Another source familiar with the Arkansas coaching search said the original report, which came from a twitter post from the Sports by Brooks website, was "speculation based on Miles and Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long having spent eight years together at Michigan."

Long worked in the athletic department at Michigan during Miles' eight-year tenure there.

"We've seen the tweet by Sports by Brooks and we're not going to comment on rumors or bits of information," Bonnette said. "It has been brought to Les' attention and he didn't have anything to say."

Miles' agent, George Bass of Dallas, could not be reached for comment. Tom Murphy of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette tweeted that he spoke to Bass by phone and Bass said, "There's nothing like that going on."

Miles is at the end of his eighth season at LSU and is the school's second winningest coach with an 85-20 record. His current LSU contract calls for $3.751 million plus post season and academic incentives and was last increased in August of 2011.

But from a competitive and recruiting standpoint, I do t see it being a spot that would lure the type of HC they seem to think it will.

IMO Peterson would be a great hire
Arkansas is a lot like OU (Oklahoma) in that many of the good players come from Texas.

Yes. Peterson, to me, would be the ideal hire.

And Hogville has shut out non-registered members, meaning that things have gotten nutty even by Arkansas standards.

That's also one of the reasons that Long would be an idiot to make him an offer.
The thing about Miles is his name would help recruiting right away. Plus, Miles would probably bring some of his staff too.

I just have a hard time envisioning it. Arkansas fans have been making fun of this guy's coaching decisions ever since he's been at LSU. Albeit, some of that is sour grapes, but a lot of it is genuine puzzlement and marvel at some of the idiocy in which he engages. When you're at Arkansas, you don't have the margin of error to make stupid freaking decisions and still manage to win games.
