BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU and Les Miles have agreed in
principle to a new contract that will run through the 2017 season.

LSU athletic director Joe Alleva says Miles' annual pay of a
little more than $3.75 million will remain the same.

Miles has won 62 games and five bowls including a 2007 national
title in his first six years with the Tigers. Alleva says the
university wants to maintain stability at the top of a winning
program.

Miles, who met with Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon on
Monday about a coaching vacancy the Wolverines had at the time,
says Baton Rouge is home to his family now and that staying at LSU
is "the right thing to do."

Miles' previous deal ran through the 2014 season. The new
contract includes additional performance bonuses.
