Here we go again?

When Bill Parcells announced his "retirement'' (via e-mail, by the way), I figured this would be one coaching search without LSU implications.

I was wrong.

Maybe it's only because of his ties to the Dallas Cowboys as an assistant coach, but Les Miles' name has been mentioned in connection with the job. And not just by goofballs throwing names out.

The Cowboys' own web site lists him among the college possibilities to replace Parcells. NFL Network's Adam Schefter on Monday night mentioned Miles along with Arkansas' Houston Nutt and Oklahoma's Bob Stoops as possibilities.

Now, in fairness, Schefter also said everyone he had talked to suggested that Jerry Jones wouldn't hire a college coach.

If Miles is smart, then he can use this talk to his benefit - both financially with LSU and also with recruits by showing that he is a man in demand.
