On hiring a new coach

Here's why LSU fans should be thankful Les Miles decided to stay.

Check out the Michigan and Arkansas coaching searches.

At Arkansas, the power brokers pushed Houston Nutt out the door. The Hogs thought they had Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe lined up to replace Nutt. Turns out, Grobe is staying at Wake.

Michigan talked a lot about Miles, but Rutgers coach Greg Schiano is the latest to say no to the Maize and Blue.

You see, it's not always easy hiring a coach. When Nick Saban left, LSU expected to get a top-of-the-line proven head coach. It settled for Miles who has proven himself with an SEC title and a spot in the BCS title game.

Had Miles left, LSU would probably be scrambling around the way Michigan and Rutgers are.

So if you're an LSU fan, just tell Les thanks.
