Les Miles is out as Kansas‘ head football coach three days after he was placed on administrative leave amid accusations of inappropriate behavior toward female students during his head-coaching tenure at LSU.

Kansas athletic director Jeff Long on Friday said the university would be conducting a full review to determine the appropriate steps on Miles’ future, and late Monday evening announced that they had “mutually agreed to part ways.”

Long said the school will use a search firm to assist in finding Miles’ successor. Long did not use a search firm when he hired Miles, a friend from their time together at Michigan in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Mike DeBord, who was hired last month as Kansas’ offensive coordinator, will serve as the program’s acting head coach until an interim head coach is determined.

On Thursday, a report released on behalf of LSU showed that a 2013 internal investigation at the school accused Miles of inappropriate behavior toward female students, including allegations he contacted some via Facebook and text, met them off campus alone and kissed at least one of them.

The report did not find he had sexual relationships with any of the women, and Miles strongly denied kissing the student, saying he didn’t do anything wrong and that he was mentoring young women at the university.

According to a copy of Miles’ employment contract with Kansas, the university would have “just cause” to end its agreement with Miles if the coach had “discreditable conduct that is inconsistent with the professional standards expected of a head coach of a collegiate sports team.”

Another clause in the contract that defines “just cause” is “participation in by head coach of any act, situation, or occurrence, or any conduct, which in Athletics of KU’s judgment brings Head Coach and/or KU into public disrepute, embarrassment, contempt, or ridicule … ”

It’s unclear whether these clauses were triggered; terms of the separation agreement are expected to be released in coming days, according to the university’s statement. Miles had three years left on a five-year contract he signed with Kansas in November 2018.
