He allegedly attempted to sexualize the staff of student workers in the football program by, for instance, allegedly demanding that he wanted ‘blondes with the big b****s’ and ‘pretty girls'
Head football coach Les Miles and Kansas Jayhawks officially agreed to mutually part ways on March 8 as reports of the coach's inappropriate behavior made headlines. Last week, allegations against the head coach sexually harassing female student employees while at Louisiana State University surfaced. The Athletic reported that a source revealed to Chris Vannini that not everyone knew about his departure, assistant coaches were not told and some found out online.
Miles who had been placed on administrative leave had allegedly "attempted to sexualize the staff of student workers in the football program by, for instance, allegedly demanding that he wanted ‘blondes with the big b***s’ and ‘pretty girls,'" as per reports. It was also reported that Miles had exchanged numbers with a female student and offered her help with her career while suggesting they meet up in a hotel or his condo. While Les Miles denies the allegations, the female student has also said that he had kissed her twice. While the coach has a lot of murky water to waddle through, his pockets might not suffer too much.
