Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis, who was Les Miles' defensive coordinator for six seasons at LSU, told ESPN.com Monday that he sensed toward the end of his tenure that power brokers were plotting to force Miles out as head coach. "It's always sad to see a man and a coach the caliber of Les get pushed out," Chavis said. "He's a Hall of Famer and a legend in the state of Louisiana. I was blessed that he gave me an opportunity to coach at a place like LSU, but I can't say I'm surprised that he's gone. They were trying to fire him when I was there, and I told him so." Chavis saw a similar situation unfold at Tennessee when future Hall of Famer Phillip Fulmer was fired in 2008. Chavis, one of the most respected defensive coordinators in the college game, left LSU for Texas A&M following the 2013 season. He said his issues were never with Miles, but that he didn't trust the LSU administration.

With No. 3 Louisville headed to No. 5 Clemson on Saturday, the ACC already has multiple Top 10 matchups this season. That has only happened twice previously.

I love it when a star isn't "too cool" to still be a fan! Dabo Swinney told me a hilarious story about meeting Pitt/Dallas Cowboys legend Tony Dorsett: He was at the ACC awards dinner and sees Dorsett. Freaks. "That's TONY DORSETT. I ain't leavin' here til I meet him! "Here I'm about to accept ACC Coach of the Year and I'm all super fan over here." Suddenly, here comes Dorsett, says... "I HAVE to get a picture with you. My agent will die!" Dorsett's agent? A Clemson grad. And then this showed up in the mail.

Just asked Dabo Swinney what he sees when he studies Louisville QB Lamar Jackson: "He's Michael Vick, right-handed." Strong.

I could be wrong but I imagine the ppl suggesting David Shaw to ____ university have never been to Stanford. Why ever leave that place?

Paul Biancardi @PaulBiancardi

LSU fires their coach.(It's still September) Would Les Miles still be coaching if they beat Auburn? Glad its not a business LOL amateurism

David Ching ESPN Staff Writer 

LSU safety Jamal Adams described Sunday's team meeting as "very emotional" when fired coach Les Miles addressed the team. "That man's so passionate about LSU," Adams said. "He's been here for 12 years. He recruited me. I think that he was just very emotional as far as letting go, but he wants to do what's best for us."

Most impressive Les Miles stat to me? Over the past 12 seasons, LSU had 24 wins in games in which it trailed in the fourth quarter. That's easily the most of any team. The Cardiac Cats almost pulled off another one Saturday night against Auburn on the Plains

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Just goes to show you the college football world we live in. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Miles leaves LSU with the highest winning percentage (.770) and second-most wins by a coach in school history. His 114 wins are 23 fewer than Charles McClendon. Miles (2007), Paul Dietzel and Nick Saban are the only coaches to win a national championship at LSU in the poll era. Miles had 11 straight eight-win seasons at LSU. That's one shy of the most consecutive eight-win seasons for a coach with an SEC program (Bear Bryant, Phillip Fulmer and Steve Spurrier each had 12). But it still wasn't enough. Recent struggles and a lack of offensive evolution doomed him
