Newly hired University of Kansas football coach Les Miles speaks to the media Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018, at Hadl Auditorium.
As new Kansas football coach Les Miles looks to fill the recently vacated offensive coordinator spot on his full-time coaching staff, Miles announced Friday the hiring of a pair of support staffers who used to work for SEC programs.
On the day Les Miles was introduced as the Kansas football program’s next head coach, back on Nov. 18, Miles said hiring coordinators and position coaches would be a key step in the recruiting process, because those new staff members would be able to lay out their plans and deliver their pitches to prospects. That bit of foreshadowing from the former LSU head coach, who inherited a 2019 KU recruiting class with just one player committed, proved true. By Benton Smith

A funny thing happened on the way to hiring Les Miles. The outgoing Kansas football staff left him just one committed player in the 2019 class. And it might have been the best thing that ever could have happened. By Matt Tait
