LSU Football: Les Miles Denies Meeting With Tyrann Mathieu

More rumors keep popping up about dismissed LSU Tigers defensive back Tyrann Mathieu. According to an article by Jim Kleinpeter of The Times Picayune, LSU head football coach Les Miles told Mathieu to "move on with his career."

On Wednesday Miles denied the report, according to LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette.

If Mathieu ends up playing elsewhere, he should be immediately eligible to play for an FCS school. He has already visited McNeese State in Lake Charles, La., and has reportedly expressed interest in Nicholls State in Thibodaux, La., Jackson State in Mississippi and Prairie View A&M in Texas.

About 20 schools have contacted LSU in hopes of landing the reigning Bednarik Award winner, the school says.
