LSU athletic director Joe Alleva made the announcement Sunday, saying Miles has done a "tremendous job" and been a "great ambassador" for LSU, but that "it's apparent in evaluating the program through the first month of the season that a change has to be made."
Miles' firing, reported first by The Advocate of Baton Rouge, comes one day after LSU (2-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference), which spent last week ranked 18th, lost 18-13 at unranked Auburn. LSU has fallen completely out of the latest AP Poll released Sunday afternoon.
Miles went 114-34 at LSU, the second-most victories in school history. He coached the Tigers to a national title in the 2007 season.
