As soon as Miles was placed on leave, I said his days were numbered. Once a coach gets placed on leave, he rarely comes back.
Now, just a few days after being sidelined, Miles and the Jayhawks have decided to go their separate ways. I would love to know how these conversations played out and how mutual it really was.

Now, we’ll wait to see if Miles ever coaches P5 football again. I’m guessing the answer to that is no. If Kansas won’t even have him, then I’m not sure anyone else will be interested.
