Kansas takes action on Les Miles

KU director of athletics Jeff Long announced this evening he has placed Les Miles on administrative leave.

From Long:

"Today, I placed head football coach Les Miles on administrative leave as we conduct a full review to determine the appropriate next steps. We are reviewing the Husch Blackwell report released today by LSU following yesterday's release of the Taylor Porter report. The past two days have been the first time that we have had access to either report.

Even though the allegations against him occurred at LSU, we take these matters very seriously at KU. Now that we have access to this information, we will take the coming days to fully review the material and to see if any additional information is available. I do not want to speculate on a timeline for our review because it is imperative we do our due diligence. We will be able to comment further once our review is complete."

The news comes the same day LSU released a scathing report about consistent failures by LSU's athletics department.

No word yet if Kansas leadership will hold Jeff Long accountable in connection with this hire.
