Oregon State president could face discipline over sexual misconduct failures at LSU

  Oregon State president could face discipline over sexual misconduct failures at LSU A letter from Oregon State says the board will consider removing its president, who led LSU when then-coach Les Miles was accused of misconduct.Alexander was president at LSU until last July.

We now know how much Kansas is paying Les Miles to no longer be the team's football coach.

The school said Tuesday that it would be paying Miles just under $2 million as part of its separation agreement with the 67-year-old coach. Kansas announced Monday night that it was parting ways with Miles after putting him on administrative leave on Friday.

Miles, who was under contract through 2023, made $3.3 million in 2020 after a $150,000 reduction because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The separation agreement also includes non-disparagement clauses.

Miles was put on leave after it became public that he was investigated for sexual harassment while he was the coach at LSU. Miles was accused of kissing a female student twice, harassing others and also requiring female students who worked in recruiting to look a certain way. While Miles denied the allegations to LSU during the investigation, he was ordered to not have any contact with female students after it was complete.

Former athletic director Joe Alleva said at the time of the investigation into Miles that the school should fire the coach. Monday, former LSU president F. King Alexander said that he regretted not taking stronger action against Miles.

Miles was fired at LSU in 2016 after a 2-2 start to the season. He was out of coaching until Kansas hired him ahead of the 2019 season. The school has said that it was unaware of the allegations against Miles at the time of his hiring. Monday night, it termed its separation with Miles as a "mutual" one, and athletic director Jeff Long didn't reference the women who had alleged Miles of misconduct. Miles was 3-18 in two seasons at KU.

The release of the details into the investigation of Miles' behavior came as part of a larger investigation into the way that LSU handled sexual misconduct allegations at LSU. That report was released on Friday, two weeks after it was first reported that Miles was investigated at LSU.

Kansas' settlement with Miles is also the second settlement Kansas has paid to a former football coach in the past nine months. The school settled with former coach David Beaty — who preceded Miles — for $2.55 million in June. Kansas had tried to fire Beaty for cause over NCAA violations and not pay him a buyout. Beaty sued and said Kansas had launched an investigation into alleged NCAA violations to avoid paying his buyout.
