Your "Insane College Football Rumor of the Day" comes from USA Today's Dan Wolken, who tweeted out this gem naming former LSU head coach Les Miles as a potential candidate for the next head coach of Purdue.
As Purdue marches toward the inevitable conclusion, one name I'm told to keep an eye on there: Les Miles— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) October 15, 2016
Miles was fired from LSU after a lackluster 2-2 start.
Purdue is 3-3 after Saturday's 49-35 loss to Iowa. Boilermakers head coach is definitely on the Hot Seat and facing an uphill climb to keep his job as the team heads into the heart of its Big Ten conference schedule. His firing is not a done deal, but it would seem to be in the cards.
As for Purdue hiring Les Miles, it will most likely be one among many schools courting Miles this offseason (or sooner). It will also probably not be the biggest name in the race, or be able to provide the best deal for The Mad Hatter.
