Those sure are some interesting looking planes in Baton Rouge this week. If you're into the fun trend that is tracking flights across this country, then you'd already know that the plane belonging to Michigan booster Richard Rogel has been in Baton Rouge for a few days now. It's also been rumored that Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon took a plane of his own to Dallas over the weekend to meet with Les Miles during the coaches convention. Whether or not Miles has already had contact with Michigan, we don't know. What we do know is that it looks like the interview process is about to be made official, as the Detroit News reports that Miles will officially interview with Michigan this week.
Miles is back in Baton Rouge this morning to attend the press conference for Patrick Peterson, who will be announcing that he's entering the NFL Draft. After that, sources tell the Detroit News that Miles will interview with Michigan on Tuesday.
Which means one of two things. Either Les Miles will be the new head coach at the University of Michigan before the week is over, or Les Miles will have a nice little pay raise from LSU by the end of the week. We know that Michigan has already said it won't spare any expense in finding a new coach, and Miles already makes $3.75 million annually at LSU. We've also heard that LSU will try and keep Miles in Baton Rouge.
So no matter where he ends up, Les Miles' wallet is going to win.
