He's not the affable character he's often made out to be.
And Les makes Orge look like a saint. From a self-proclaimed LSU insider. Take it for what it's worth.

------------------------------------
"I know a little bit about his past that some may know and some may not.

Les was not the quirky, goofy, likeable guy you saw in his pressers. He was in fact, kind of a pos. He wasn't well liked by all his players, and he was not liked at all by other former players not his own.

I had heard a few rumors about his trysts with coeds within the department and allegedly a member of the golden girls. He had a smash pad over at the Field House lofts, which was brand new at the time.

I heard about how he was the one responsible for the L club golf tournament being banned from the UClub for a while. It was allegedly his idea to begin to have women from the gold club hanging out during the tournament doing various golf duties for the day. While there for brief periods of time, he spent time fraternizing with the strippers rather than talking and conversing with former players. This was one thing Nick Saban was big on. Nick attended these functions specifically the golf tournament from start to finish. He made a point to meet, talk to, shake hands and take pics with everyone that was there. When Les got here, he was rarely attending for any longer than required, and when he was there, he was hitting on strippers. The scantily clad women supposedly got them banned which was all done at the direction of Les. His poor relationship with the L Club our base of former players was evident.

In summary, he was a womanizing piece of crap and im stunned he managed to stay on as long as he did here. I have no doubt he [protected players for things that he himself likely participated in. I wish LSU could use this info against him to recoup some of his buyout to retroactively fire him with cause.

Good 24hr'ing riddance to that man

Always makes me chuckle when these stories appear, many who knew speak up. Where was this transparency prior?
Is it any different than folks not talking about Jeff Banks and his "squeeze?" Or, Mike Price when he was hitting the bars so heavily before spring camp? Or, people not talking about Gottfried when he was making his runs through the co-eds?

In all seriousness how many times did we see things happening down there that were swept under the proverbial rug? Jordan Jefferson and Joshua Johns kicking that guy at the bar (who was already laid out.) Who was that running back that ran into trouble for the underage girls? OR...

People normally settle out of court when there's not concrete proof. 🤷‍♂️

If you’ve ever taken the time to look in his eyes you can see the equal parts of arrogance and deceit. When he speaks it is obvious in my opinion that he thinks he is not only smarter than everyone else but he also acts as if everything is beneath him. I’ve always thought he exhibits classic narcissistic sociopath tendencies. Reminds me a lot of Craig James. JMO

I don't know where you've been but this is just like what was said earlier. What started as smoke turned out to be a freakin' bonfire. It shouldn't be a shock. Les routinely brushed things aside with his players. Why should we expect him to hold himself to a higher standard?

According to The Advocate, the settlement doesn't show up in court records in Baton Rouge, La., and emerged amid a investigation into how LSU has handled allegations of sexual misconduct.

USA Today sued LSU in January for copies of the Miles investigation report after the university refused to release it. A judge ordered that it remain sealed until March 30, when a trial to hear Miles and LSU's objections will be heard.

LSU also has retained the outside law firm Husch Blackwell to audit roughly 60 sexual misconduct cases from 2016 to 2018.

A 2013 internal investigation at LSU accused former coach Les Miles of inappropriate behavior toward female students, but did not find that Miles had sexual relationships with any of the women, according to an investigative report released by the university Thursday.

According to the investigative report, first reported on by USA Today and obtained by ESPN, Miles was accused of contacting female students via Facebook and text, meeting them off campus alone and kissing at least one of them.

According to the report, Miles strongly denied kissing the student and said he didn't do anything wrong, that he was mentoring young women at the university. Athletic department staff accused Miles of saying that female student employees who helped lure top recruits to the football team "needed to have a certain look," further implying that meant attractive, blond and fit, according to the report, and if existing student employees didn't fit that description, they should be given fewer hours or fired.

In a statement provided to ESPN, Miles' attorney, Peter Ginsberg, said the release of the investigation, which was done by law firm Taylor Porter on behalf of LSU, "should put an end to the baseless, inaccurate media reports that Coach Les Miles engaged in an inappropriate touching of an Athletic Department student volunteer eight years ago."

"As the Report concludes, the allegation that coach Miles attempted to kiss the woman was supported by no evidence and warranted no discipline: 'We do not believe under existing law and the terms of the contract there is cause to discipline and/or terminate' Coach Miles. Coach Miles denied then, as he denies now, that any such conduct occurred."

Miles' attorney said a second woman made a similar allegation that was not supported in the findings.

According to the investigative report, that woman's "demeanor and inconsistent, vague statements are such that she does not appear to be a reliable source of information." The woman claimed, according to the report, that she was "subjected to an unwanted touching."

The Taylor Porter investigation determined "we are unable to determine what occurred" in Miles' car, where the first woman said Miles had kissed her twice.

In spite of no verdict about what actually occurred in the car, the report stated "there can be little doubt that the conduct, if true, is inappropriate and unacceptable," and that even with accepting Miles' version of what happened, "it appears that he has shown poor judgement in placing himself (and the student employee) in a situation in which the student employee might be uncomfortable and/or he can be subject to such complaint."

As a result of the investigation, LSU issued Miles a letter of reprimand, and he was ordered to stop hiring student employees to babysit and was not allowed to be alone with them.

The report ultimately determined that "LSU was unable to substantiate any legal violation," according to a letter from the Taylor Porter law firm to Ginsberg, but "LSU has concluded that Miles engaged in behavior which showed poor judgment."

Miles, who is now head coach at Kansas, also had to attend eight, one-hour sessions with an attorney and pay for them himself.

A Kansas athletics spokesman told the Lawrence Journal-World that the university was in the process of reviewing the investigative report.

"We are also aware that LSU is issuing an additional report tomorrow (Friday), and we will wait to comment further until we have reviewed both documents," the spokesman told the Journal-World.

USA Today has reported widespread mishandling of sexual misconduct allegations by LSU's athletic department and administration. As a result, LSU hired law firm Husch Blackwell in November to audit its handling of dozens of sexual misconduct cases since 2016.

The results of that investigation will be released on Friday.
