 BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU football coach Les Miles has a new seven-year contract that pays him a $4.3 million annual salary and keeps him in Tiger Stadium through the 2019 season.
The university system's Board of Supervisors backed the contract extension Friday, giving Miles a $549,000 - or 15 percent - increase.
``When you study the body of work that the man has done over the last eight years, I believe that he has run a quality program, one of the top programs in the country. And in my evaluation, all indications look like we're still going to be there, we're going to stay on that track,'' Athletics Director Joe Alleva told the board.
Since becoming LSU's coach in 2005, Miles has lodged the second-highest number of wins in university history, with a record of 85-21. LSU finished No. 14 for the 2012 season, going 10-3 and losing to Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
Miles, who didn't attend Friday's meeting, and Alleva agreed to the new deal in December, after Arkansas contacted Miles about its then-vacant head coaching job.
The board approved the pay raise and contract extension with little discussion and no objections.
