Kansas football head coach and national champion Les Miles has received a pretty good ranking from Sporting News.

Despite only a three-win season during the 2019 campaign, Kansas football head coach Les Miles received a fair ranking from Sporting News. Their ranks placed Miles just inside the top 40 at No. 36 out of 130 college football coaches. Out of the ten Big 12 coaches, Miles came in at No. 7 in the conference, with Lincoln Riley at No. 1 and No. 4 overall.

Since only six current college coaches have won a national title, Les Miles is in some elite company that includes Nick Sabin, Dabo Swinney, Jimbo Fisher, Mack Brown, and Ed Orgeron.
