WAFB in Louisiana is reporting that the worst-kept secret in college football is in motion. Monday night, LSU head coach Les Miles reportedly met with Michigan AD Dave Brandon at Miles’ house.
Brandon and two other Michigan representatives left the meeting and were taken to Baton Rouge Metro Airport in a Cadillac Escalade, where they were seen boarding Brandon’s Domino’s Pizza plane at 7:40 p.m. The plane left moments later.
The jet, on loan to Brandon, landed in Baton Rouge Monday afternoon fueling speculation that he was on his way to a meeting with Miles.
Earlier in the day, Miles spoke at a press conference to announce that junior cornerback Patrick Peterson would enter the NFL Draft. During the presser, Miles said he met with LSU players Monday morning and told them he expects to remain at LSU.
We know Miles isn’t going to say anything that makes sense in response to a direct question about the job, so we’ll likely hear something from Michigan in the next day or so.
