Les Miles Files Lawsuit Against LSU and NCAA Over Vacated Wins, Impacting Hall of Fame Eligibility

Les Miles, former LSU football coach, has filed a lawsuit against the school and NCAA over vacated wins that impacted his Hall of Fame eligibility. He asserts that LSU's decision to vacate 37 wins cost him a nomination to the College Football Hall of Fame.

Miles coached LSU from 2005 to 2016, winning a BCS national championship in 2007. LSU vacated wins from 2012-2015 due to recruiting violations, altering Miles' official coaching record.

His overall record was changed to 108–73, below the .600 winning percentage required for Hall of Fame eligibility. The lawsuit claims Miles was denied due process and that LSU's penalties were more severe than necessary.

Miles last coached at Kansas in 2020, leaving amid sexual harassment allegations. He compiled a 28–21 record at Oklahoma State as well.
