So fantastic.

I so badly wanted him back in the Big Ten on one of the last 2 hiring sprees (1st round was back when Mich was was supposedly trying hard to pull him from LSU, in what, like 2010?). Dude would add so much value and entertainment to the weekly presser and anything on BTN. Entertaining like Spurrier but for different quotable reasons.

Also, if you Les need

I'm sure its a matter of freezing in any type of pressure moment, but man was that bad with a hot mic. Lesticles def gave this gal and the Iraq a run for their money.

Les knows the Big 12.

Probably a good hire for Kansas, creates "news" and may attract some recruits who might otherwise not consider it.  The bar is low obviously.

The two coaches that have some cache include Brohm of course and probably Stoops at UK.

UNC is going to be looking for a coach at some point, unless they just quit trying.

KU doesn't have the resources that LSU or even oSu has.  The fact that they were able to even land ole Les is a minor miracle in and of itself.  As was already stated, he knows the Big 12.  He helped make oSu a quasi-power.  While I'd be shocked if he won big, I think he can at least make them a consistent bowl contender.

I dunno, he coached there like 15 years ago. It's not even the same teams anymore.
He "knows" Bill Snyder, perhaps.

He's a name, one of few out there.  I see this as a good hire, not that Miles will have them winning conferences, but they might be able to make minor bowls as noted above on some reasonable basis.

Look where Purdue was 3-4 years back, almost Rutger territory.

Speaking of Rutgers, they need to drop the dead weight and start afresh.

I think Army's Jeff Monken would work wonders in Piscataway.  Rutgers could become the GT of the B1G.

I think it's a given that Ash is out, but I think it's a different Big Ten school who has a better shot at Monken, Illinois.  Monken grew up in Peoria and went to college in Decatur.  Both are about an hour from Champaign.

Teams may have to look at assistants which are generally less well know to fans.

It's certainly possible.  I just don't think Illinois is ready to part ways with Lovie yet, especially when he's got them on the cusp of bowl eligibility this year.  Regardless of this weekend's outcome, I think he gets at least one more year.

Lance Leipold @ Buffalo might be an intriguing option too, but like Monken, Illinois could be attractive since it's not all that far from his stomping grounds (WI).

That said, I wouldn't be shocked if both coaches get a crack at something far better than RU or UI-UC.

My prediction right now: Les will fail at KU.

Les miles is IMHO a little too much "smashmouth big-boy football" for a team that doesn't have serious talent. Couple that with the fact that the entire rest of the conference is all high-flying offenses. I don't see how he's going to be able to keep up unless he's FAR more adaptable than I think.
