only offer that the coach eventu-
ally had to accept.
The second reason Miles won't
be coaching the Wolverines is
former coach Lloyd Carr's opposi-
tion to hiring Miles, and a small
group of people who agreed with
him. Carr said at his final press
conference he wasn't going to try
to handpick his successor. But
he certainly had influence in the
search. I suspect Miles knew Carr
didn't want him to be the coach
and he didn't want Carr, in his
new position as an associate ath-
letic director, scrutinizing every
move Miles made.
Miles also worried that Carr
and others would persuade
Martin not to offer him the job.
Martin wanted a face-to-face
interview with Miles, just as he
had with Beilein, before he hired
him. Miles might have thought
this need was prompted by Carr
and Co. and wondered if he would
get a job offer.
Martin's old-school approach
- the third reason Miles won't
coach Michigan - likely hurt
the process in other ways, too.
Depending on whom you believe,
Martin either "played by the
rules" and didn't talk to Miles
or his agent all week or had the
entire deal orchestrated and
arranged through back channels
but wanted to interview Miles
before hiring him. Martin stuck
to this strategy and didn't make it
absolutely clear to Miles that he
was far and away the top choice,
even though he knew LSU was
negotiating with Miles' agent
late in the week, put Miles in an
uncomfortable spot. Miles knew
he had an offer from LSU, and
he knew the offer would beat the
potential Michigan offer. The
problem was, he didn't know if the
Michigan offer would come.
I'll return to this in a bit.
ESPN analyst (and Ohio State
alum) Kirk Herbstreit reported
Saturday morning that sources
confirmed Miles would take the
Michigan job early this week.
This report seems to have been
the last straw, the fourth rea-
son Miles had to accept LSU's
one-day-only offer. With an SEC
Championship Game to coach and
a possible national champion-
ship game berth in the balance,
Herbstreit's report forced Miles
to hold a press conference before
the game to debunk the story. But
Instead, he left some wiggle
room, not mentioning Michigan
and not saying definitively that
he would coach LSU next sea-
son. Apparently, Miles's agent
attempted to contact Martin,
trying to find out if his client was
going to get an offer or not. He
couldn't reach Martin, and Miles
had to accept the LSU offer.
Because of Martin's old-school
tendencies and a faction, includ-
ing Carr, opposed to his hiring,
Miles never knew whether he
would get the Michigan job. Com-
bined with LSU's offer being one-
day-only and Herbstreit's report
on Saturday morning that forced
Miles to say something defini-
tive that day, Miles didn't have a
choice. He said he was "embar-
rassed that (his) name was on
ESPN," and he felt for his team,
which deserved better than to be
left in limbo any longer.
"(Michigan's) a proud tradition,
and they have to do the things
they have to do," Miles said. "I'm
for them, and if there's any way
I can help them, I'd love to help
them. But I'm not going there."
No, he's not. But it's not because
he didn't want to, and it's not
because he's not the right man for
the job. Michigan did the things
it had to do, and those things lost
it Les - the perfect person for the
A lot of people will read this
and think: "Michigan's just being
arrogant again. Why would they
think that the coach of a top 5
program would take less money
for himself and less money for his
assistants to come to a program
that hasn't won a bowl game in
Because it's Les, that's why.
He wanted this job bad.
And that's been clear his whole
It was clear when a former
player at Oklahoma State under
Miles effectively said that Miles
worshipped the 'M,' and that
Miles would never truly be a Cow-
boy and never be a Tiger. He was
always a Wolverine. He wouldn't
be completely content until he
came home to Ann Arbor.
It was clear when LSU put a
clause in his contract mentioning
just one job in the entire country
that would cost Miles a $1.25 mil-
lion buyout to take - more than
double the amount it would cost
him to take any other job.
It was clear when Miles con-
tinually dodged questions about
possibly taking the Michigan job,
even when his team was ranked
No. 1 in the country and pursuing
a national championship.
It was clear Saturday morn-
ing, when Miles called an
impromptu press conference
to debunk the report he was
leaving for Michigan but didn't
And it was clear after LSU's
win over Tennessee in the SEC
Championship Game Saturday,
when Miles got choked up talking
about his dream job.
"I certainly love Michigan,"
Miles said. "I will always be a
Michigan man.... But I'm not
going there. It saddens me, at
times. I can't be in two places. I'm
in a great place. I'm home."
No, he's not. He'd referred to
Ann Arbor as "home" previously,
and he sounded like he was try-
ing to convince himself more than
anyone else Saturday that Baton
Rouge was home.
It's not, and it's likely that he,
through no fault of his own, now
won't get the chance he deserved
more than anyone else - to come
home to Michigan.

Michigan officials defended
their early primary, saying it
helps provide geographic, racial
and economic diversity early in
the primary calendar. They also
complained that other states that
were allowed to hold early votes
were receiving preferential treat-
"I think it is unconscionable
that we continue to grant special
treatment to some states in this
process," Brewer told the DNC
Alexis Herman, co-chair of the
DNC rules panel, said party lead-
ers worked for two years to create
a primary calendar that respected
the historic roles of Iowa and New
Hampshire, while adding geo-
graphic and racial diversity by
allowing Nevada and South Caro-
lina to vote early.
Other panel members sympa-
thized with Michigan, but they
said they must enforce the rules.
"While we may not like the
rules, if we don't respect the rules,
then we are going to have chaos,"
said committee member Yvonne
Gates of Nevada.
Both political parties have been
struggling to control their chaotic
The Republicans have stripped
half the delegates from New
Hampshire, Florida, South Caro-
lina, Michigan and Wyoming for
scheduling early primaries and
caucuses. Republican rules don't
allow any states to hold nominat-
ing contests before Feb. 5.
The Republicans, however,
haven't set any restrictions on
campaigning in states that violate
party rules. That has some Demo-
crats concerned that they could
lose votes in Florida, the fourth
largest state, and Michigan, the
Former DNC Chairman Don
Fowler, a member of the rules
panel, said stripping the delegates
from Michigan and Florida - and
prohibiting candidates from cam-
paigning there during the prima-
ries - will hurt party-building
efforts in those states.
Fowler also said that stripping
the delegates was unnecessary,
since many party insiders believe
that theeventualnominee willhave
them restored at theconvention.
"No one at this table believes
that the delegates from Florida
and Michigan will be absent from
the convention," Fowler told the
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said
in a statement: "The threat not to
seat the delegates of Michigan and
Florida at the Democratic conven-
tion is ahollow threat. They willbe
seated, and when they are, it will
be plain for all to see that the priv-
ileged position that New Hamp-
shire and Iowa have extracted
through threats and pledges from
candidates is on its last legs."
Under convention rules, a cre-
dentials committee controlled by
the presidential candidate with
the most delegates will verify the
legitimacy of delegates.
