Les Miles is in final talks to become Kansas’ next head football coach, according to Sports Illustrated .

Just yesterday, LSU and Les Miles completed a $1.5 million lump-sum settlement that relieves the university of paying its former football coach an additional $5 million through 2023, the Associated Press reports.

Vice chancellor and director of athletics Joe Alleva says the agreement allows both parties to “move on.”

The settlement saves LSU money in the long term while removing any disincentives for Miles to pursue another college coaching job immediately.
