Miles is the first known candidate to interview for the position that was previously held by Tracy Claeys. He was fired by the team on Tuesday night.
Claeys supported his team as they boycotted the suspension of 10 of his former players for an alleged sexual assault. He was told if they continued to boycott that he would be fired.
After the players had a meeting, along with Claeys, and the administration, they changed their mind. They would play in the National Funding Holiday Bowl and would defeat the Washington State Cougars 17-12.
Miles was fired by the LSU Tigers after going 2-2 to being the 2016 season. Interim head coach Ed Orgeron went 5-2 with the team as the interim coach before getting the permanent job.
Miles is 142-55 in his 16-years as a college football head coach. He was 28-21 with the Oklahoma State Cowboys, then was 114-34 with the Tigers.
He also reportedly interviewed for the Houston Cougars head coaching position in Dec. They promoted Major Applewhite from offensive coordinator to head coach once Tom Herman left to become the Texas Longhorns head coach.
Fleck is 30-22 as the Broncos head coach over the last four-years.
