Former LSU coach Les Miles is suing the school for vacating wins in response to an NCAA infractions case, a move that dropped Miles below the threshold for College Football Hall of Fame qualification.

Miles, who coached LSU from 2005 to 2016, also named the NCAA and the National Football Foundation, which manages the College Football Hall of Fame, as defendants. The lawsuit states he was deprived of property rights to the vacated wins and his nomination for the Hall of Fame, which must be done by those affiliated with an NCAA member school.

In 2023, LSU vacated 37 wins because of recruiting violations stemming from impermissible benefits paid to the father of former player Vadal Alexander by a former booster. The wins coincided with Alexander's playing career from 2012 to 2015 under Miles, who went 37-14 during the stretch. The vacated football wins were announced alongside other penalties for LSU's football and men's basketball programs by the NCAA's Independent Accountability Resolution Process.

The 37 vacated wins dropped Miles' overall record from 145-73, a winning percentage of .665, to 108-73, a winning percentage of .597. Coaches must have a career winning percentage of .600 in at least 100 games to qualify for selection to the College Football Hall of Fame. Miles, 70, helped LSU to a national championship in 2007 and won two SEC titles at the school. He also led programs at Oklahoma State and Kansas.

"Our theory is over the course of his career, Les had certain achievements that he had a right to accept -- in this instance, they triggered being on the [Hall of Fame] ballot," Miles' attorney Peter Ginsberg told ESPN. "When that was stripped of him, without any notice or due process, that action effectively deprived him of the property right to be on the ballot."

He could go to a MAC school and try and get in the right way, rather than fucking sue....

Lazy bastard. He's an asshole anyway so fuck him.

Well I am pretty sure he played a part in it as well. So he has himself to blame as well
For sure, although he strikes me as the type to assign blame elsewhere…

Boosters? WHAT ARE THOSE lol

Yeah there is no way he didn't know what was going on. If he had spoken up about it and tried to prevent it then perhaps he would have a case to sue but not in this instance imo
