In the last hour, Sam Webb, of the Michigan Scout.com site Go Blue Wolverine reports that the University of Michigan has, in fact, contacted Les Miles' agent regarding their coaching vacancy:
Report (Sam Webb): Michigan has reached out to Les Miles’ agent. Our update http://t.co/gkayvPt9KK— FootballScoop Staff (@FootballScoop) December 10, 2014
The report is behind the Scout.com paywall, but is discussed here, via MLive.com. FootballScoop's report, linked in the tweet, mentions that Miles and Duke Head Coach David Cutcliffe have been discussed, however:
For what it's worth, sources close to Cut and Les we have spoken with do not expect significant talks with Michigan.
Via his twitter, Scott Roussel (the man behind the site -- and a must-follow for the comings and goings of the game), also later added:
I wouldn’t expect Alleva to get in bidding war; but don’t expect it to get to that RT @JackScarbrough: Les looking for a raise again?— FootballScoop Staff (@FootballScoop) December 10, 2014
Additionally, Webb himself tweeted the following:
To this point Les Miles has not reciprocated #Michigan's interest.— Sam Webb (@SamWebb77) December 10, 2014
Stay tuned and we'll update as we get word. Personally, I still don't think much comes from this, but we shall see.
