Bill Self on Les Miles being hired as KU's next football coach


Bill Self spoke to reporters at his weekly availability Monday afternoon at Allen Fieldhouse. Self answered questions about Les Miles, and previewed the NIT Season Tip-Off.

"I've known of Les from a distance ever since he coached at Oklahoma State, and have enjoyed watching him coach both there and at LSU," Self said in a team release Sunday afternoon. "His hiring brings excitement, interest and credibility to our football program, which in turn will do so much for our university. I know he and his staff will hit the ground running, and I am looking forward to connecting and working with him."

KU (3-0) takes on Marquette at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Let's see...40 coaches in KU football history. Eight coaches in KU basketball history. Is that 4 of the football coaches during Bill Self's tenure? Let's hope we don't equal the number of football coaches during his tenure as we have basketball coaches in our history. We know Les Miles can coach. But can he recruit at Kansas? You have to be able to get players and lots of them.
