Les Miles' $549K pay raise up for LSU board vote

BATON ROUGE - LSU's governing board is considering a $549,000 annual pay raise for football coach Les Miles.

If approved Friday by the Board of Supervisors, the change will bump Miles' salary to $4.3 million a year and extend his contract through the 2019 season.

Miles and Athletics Director Joe Alleva agreed to the new deal in December, after Arkansas contacted Miles about its then-vacant head coaching job.

Since becoming LSU's coach in 2005, Miles has lodged the second-highest number of wins in university history, with a record of 85-21. LSU finished No. 14 for the 2012 season, after losing to Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Miles' pay hike comes at the same board meeting where university officials get an update on the latest round of state budget cuts to LSU campuses.
