LSU has fired football coach Les Miles, multiple sources confirmed to The Advocate on Sunday.
Miles coached the Tigers for 12 years, winning the BCS championship in 2007. His team entered the season ranked fifth in the country, but after losing to Auburn on Saturday to fall to 2-2 on the season, the Tigers are no longer ranked in the top 25.
Along with Miles, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has also reportedly been fired.
Miles was nearly fired at the end of the 2015 season, only to have LSU President F. King Alexander nix the plan at the last minute.
LSU has not finished a season ranked in the top 10 since losing the BCS championship game following the 2011 season.
Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season, according to The Advocate. Orgeron previously served as the interim head coach at USC when Lane Kiffin was fired in the middle of the 2013 season.
