According to the Dallas News, new Kansas Jayhawks head football coach Les Miles was approached in March about starting the UT-Arlington football program. If the school was looking to hire Miles, they cannot do that now.

The newspaper says Miles met with an Austin-based construction and design studio company, who had plans to build a new football facility on campus. Prior to his hire on Nov. 18, he was involved in the school’s recent talks about bringing football back.

He reportedly met with the Bercy Chen Studio on March 5th about the future facilities on campus.

“Our team met with Coach Miles on Monday and he was full of enthusiastic ideas, so it would be great to properly tailor our design progress for the football facilities with your overall plans and with what we need to present to the University,” Bercy Chen’s Joshua Mackley wrote in an email to UTA athletic director Jim Baker.

Miles replaced David Beaty as the Jayhawks head coach at the end of the season.

UT-Arlington has not played a season since the 1985 season. The Mavericks were last coached by Chuck Curtis, who guided the team to 4-6 record in the final season of the program.

As a football team, the team went 129-150-2 as a Division II Independent program before transitioning to the Southland Conference. During their 10-1 season in 1967, the tam won the Pecan Bowl over the North Dakota State Bison, 13-0.
