Arkansas Reportedly Makes 5-Year Offer to LSU Coach Les Miles

The college football world could be in for another huge change, as one of the biggest names in coaching could be on the move.

According to Nola.com's Jim Kleinpeter, LSU head coach Les Miles has reportedly been offered a five-year, $27.5 million deal to take over the reins at Arkansas.

"The offer is reportedly for five years and $27.5 million," writes Kleinpeter, who broke the news on Tuesday night.

If the deal goes down, it would certainly shake up the college football landscape. Miles has been the man at LSU since 2005, highlighted by a 2008 BCS National Championship victory over the Ohio State Buckeyes.

During his tenure at LSU, Miles has led the Tigers to two national championship games and four bowl wins.

It would be quite ironic to see Miles accept the job, as his Tigers just defeated the Razorbacks 20-13 in both teams' regular-season finale.

While no definitive word has yet been given, there's definitely some stock to this considering figures have been released and the discussions are "ongoing" between the athletic director and Miles' agent.
