Reporting on the impact of the coronavirus on the sports world

Branches of LSU’s ongoing investigation into sexual misconduct and domestic violence allegations have reached Lawrence, Kansas A report by Andrea Gallo and Brooks Kubena of the Baton Rouge Advocate on Wednesday shows that current Kansas coach Les Miles had previously reached an agreement with a former intern in the sports department when he was serving as the head coach of the Tigers program

The scope of the investigation was released Thursday when Miles was accused of “texting female students, taking them to his apartment alone, making them feel uncomfortable, and kissing and proposing to a student at least once to go to him”A hotel after he told her it could help her career,” according to the USA Today report

Miles was reprimanded by the university and had to sign forms stating that he understood the university’s policies. Miles was also “ordered to stop hiring, being alone with, and attending student staff attend eight hour-long sessions with a lawyer and pay for them out of pocket, “says the report. If he violates any of the provisions, he will be fired

Details of the settlement are virtually unknown – the attorney says it “did not turn up in a search for Baton Rouge court records” – but Miles was nonetheless the subject of further investigation by Baton Rouge’s Taylor Porter law firm at the time to 2013, per USA Today attorney also reported that a Taylor Porter attorney, Vicki Crochet, contacted LSU’s H. Director, AG Monaco asked him to keep information about the investigation secret from the upper echelons of the university – which he refused. The contents of this investigation have been kept under lock and key, but lawyers representing Miles have agreed to allow the Baton Rouge court to clear it

The Taylor Porter investigation reveal is timely in light of the Husch Blackwell law firm’s broader investigation into LSU’s dealings with such matters dating back to Miles’ time in Baton Rouge

Miles, who was fired from LSU four games in the 2016 season, denied harassing the student when the newspaper reached him but did not respond directly to questions about the settlement Jim Sabourin, vice president of strategic communications at LSU, also issued a brief statement on the paper: “As part of Husch Blackwell’s review and our internal investigations, we heard of an agreement, but LSU is not a party and has not seen it”
