LSU's Les Miles to meet the media today

LSU wants Monday's news conference to be about cornerback Patrick Peterson and his expected decision to enter the NFL draft.

But coach Les Miles' presence next to Peterson will make that difficult.

Miles and Peterson will appear before reporters at noon ET in Baton Rouge. An LSU spokesman said Miles only will address questions about Peterson and not discuss his potential candidacy for Michigan's head-coaching vacancy.

But the coach certainly will be asked about his future.

Colleague Joe Schad reported Saturday that Michigan wants to interview Miles and will schedule a meeting soon. According to The Detroit News, the interview will take place Tuesday.

It certainly seems like Miles is the leading candidate for the Michigan job, but we'll find out more in the coming hours.
