LSU makes Miles one of highest paid coaches

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU officials have agreed to pay
football coach Les Miles at least $3.75 million a year for five
years, part of a renegotiated contract deal after the Tigers won
the national championship.
The contract change will ensure Miles is among the top paid
college football coaches in the nation. He also is eligible to
receive more money each year, depending on the team's performance
on the field and in the classroom.
The contract adjustment was signed Friday by Miles and LSU
system president John Lombardi. The university system's governing
board also must agree to the deal.
