Former LSU football coach Les Miles was investigated for sexual harassment in 2013

0


Three years before Louisiana State University fired him, head football coach Les Miles weathered an internal investigation into allegations he sexually harassed student workers and made sexist comments about others, USA TODAY has learned.

At the time of the 2013 investigation, done quietly by an outside law firm, Miles was one of the nation’s most successful and beloved coaches in college football, one of an exclusive club to win a national championship. Though his actions were deemed to be improper, Miles appears to have faced no public repercussions from LSU.

It wasn’t until 2016, after LSU got off to a 2-2 start, that the school fired him. He now is the head football coach at the University of Kansas.

Former Louisiana State University head football coach Les Miles was investigated by the school for sexual harassment in 2013.

USA TODAY sued LSU in January for a copy of the investigation report after LSU refused to release it. East Baton Rouge District Court Judge Chip Moore has indicated that the bulk of it should be made public and has shown the document to the lawyers in the case. But Moore also ordered Tuesday that it remain sealed until a March 30 trial to hear Miles and LSU’s objections to the release.
