LSU has fired football coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and promoted defensive line coach Ed Orgeron to interim head coach, the school announced Sunday.Miles firing, first reported by the Baton Rouge Advocate, comes one day after LSU lost 18-13 at?Auburn?when referees overruled what had appeared to be a game-winning touchdown. Replay showed that LSU did not start the final play before the game clock hit zero.Decisions like this are never easy ones to make, athletic director Joe Alleva said in a statement Sunday night. Coach Miles has done a tremendous job here and hes been a great ambassador for our University, which makes this even more difficult.However, its apparent in evaluating the program through the first month of the season that a change has to be made. Our commitment to excellence and competing at the highest level is unwavering, and our goals for the remainder of this season havent changed. We have an obligation to our student-athletes to put them in the best position to have success on the football field each week and we have great confidence that coach Orgeron will do just that.Sources told ESPNs Chris Low that the decision to dismiss Miles was made late Saturday night after the Auburn game.So ends the 12-year reign of one of the quirkiest and most popular coaches in SEC history -- one who was as famous for his oddball behavior like eating grass as he was for winning games at an impressive clip.Miles expected to contend for a national championship with a veteran-laden team this season, but a 2-2 start was enough to bring about the end.?The coaching change is a move that to some degree was 10 months in the making.Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis, who was Miles defensive coordinator for six seasons at LSU, told ESPN on Monday that he sensed toward the end of his tenure that power brokers were plotting to force Miles out as coach.Its always sad to see a man and a coach the caliber of Les get pushed out, said Chavis, who left for Texas A&M following the 2013 season. Hes 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 cant say Im surprised that hes gone. They were trying to fire him when I was there, and I told him so.Orgeron, 55, is a Louisiana native who began his college career as a lineman at LSU.He was head coach at Ole Miss from 2005 to 2007, compiling a 10-25 record. He was the interim coach at?USC?in 2013 when Lane Kiffin was fired. Orgeron led the Trojans to a 6-2 record that included a win over No. 3 Stanford. He left?USC when the school chose Steve Sarkisian as coach.Coach O brings new energy. He is pumped up. I am excited to play for Coach O, center Ethan Pocic said. Its not easy. College football is a business. The best thing I can do is do whatever Coach O asks us. Hes our coach now.Miles survived a November coup attempt last year, when consecutive humiliating losses to Alabama, Arkansas?and Ole Miss nearly led to his dismissal. Many Tigers fans arrived at the emotional season-ending contest against?Texas A&M?expecting to see The Mad Hatter coach his final game in purple-and-gold, only to learn after the Tigers 19-7 victory that LSUs administration had decided to keep Miles in charge.Then circumstances quickly seemed to turn in Miles favor.The Tigers wrapped up the 2015 season with a resounding bowl win over Texas Tech then lost just one underclassman -- far fewer than the norm in recent years -- to the NFL draft, allowing LSU to return a whopping 18 starters for the 2016 season. Miles also made a well-received hire, nabbing defensive coordinator Dave Aranda away from Wisconsin, and signed ESPNs No. 3 recruiting class in February, with LSUs 19 ESPN 300 signees matching the best total for any program since ESPN began compiling recruiting rankings a decade ago.However, the fire under Miles seat reignited as soon as the 2016 season started, with an impotent offensive performance against Wisconsin producing a 16-14 upset, the Tigers first season-opening defeat in Miles 12 seasons in Baton Rouge. The offense had looked a bit better since Danny Etling supplanted Brandon Harris at quarterback early in Week 2 but fell flat again versus Auburn. The Tigers scored just one touchdown on the Plains, and Etlings last-second touchdown pass to D.J. Chark was waved off once replay officials determined LSU did not start the play in time.Blame Miles issues on insufficient quarterback recruiting and development or on a general lack of offensive innovation. The bottom line was simply that Miles won less frequently in recent years than he did in the early portion of his Tigers tenure.Miles posted a 75-18 record (41-15 SEC) in his first seven seasons at LSU -- a stretch that included three SEC West titles, two SEC titles, a BCS championship and another title game appearance.It was that second BCS championship game appearance, when then-undefeated LSU lost to Alabama in a rematch from earlier in the season, that many Tigers fans circle as the turning point in Miles tenure. Alabama won 21-0, but the score hardly describes the level of humiliation that accompanied the Tigers loss. LSU finished the game with 92 yards of total offense -- far and away the worst offensive performance in BCS title game history.Since the Tigers fell face-first on that enormous stage, LSU has lost more than three games in each full season and failed to win a division or conference title. The Tigers winning percentage in that five-year stretch -- 70.9 percent overall and 61.8 percent in conference play -- was well short of the consistency Miles displayed in his first seven seasons (80.6 percent overall, 73.2 percent SEC).The biggest problem in recent years came in division play, especially when it came time to face Alabama. The Tigers went 2-7 against Ole Miss, Arkansas and Alabama over the previous three seasons and havent beaten Alabama since the 2011 regular season, a stretch of five straight defeats to the Tide.Those losses to Nick Sabans SEC powerhouse sometimes came in heartbreaking fashion -- on a last-minute AJ McCarron touchdown pass to T.J. Yeldon in 2012 or a blown late lead in an overtime loss in 2014 -- but the result was always the same. Once again, the Tigers had suffered a loss to their most-hated rival and occupied second-tier status in college footballs toughest division.That was supposed to change this season with Heisman Trophy contender Leonard Fournette leading a roster loaded with future NFL players like cornerback TreDavious White, safety Jamal Adams, linebacker Kendell Beckwith, edge rushers Lewis Neal and Arden Key, and receivers Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural.But the poor start was apparently enough for Alleva and LSUs power brokers to pull the trigger on this long-debated move. They dispatched a coach whose 114-34 record and 77.0 winning percentage are best among modern-day LSU coaches and match up with the most successful coaches in SEC history.Miles is 16th all time in wins as an SEC coach, one shy of Johnny Majors (Tennessee) and Frank Thomas (Alabama). His overall winning percentage ranks seventh among SEC coaches who spent at least five years in the conference, and his 64 career SEC wins are tied for 10th all time with Tommy Tuberville (Ole Miss/Auburn).Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.Air Jordan Scarpe Italia .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back.

Air Jordan Scarpe Saldi .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. Scarpe Jordan a Poco Prezzo . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game.CHICAGO -- Scott Feldman envisioned big things for Chris Davis. Now that theyre united again, he gets to see it up close. Davis hit his major league-leading 32nd homer and added a tiebreaking two-run double to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night. "I think the big thing with him is just getting the opportunity," said Feldman, his teammate in Texas. "Hes always been a really talented and strong guy. Hed go down to the minor leagues and do the same thing every time. But then hed get back up, and it was kind of inconsistent with the playing time. It was a different situation over there, obviously." Feldman wasnt bad in his first appearance for Baltimore, pitching six solid innings. And the Orioles hung on to win for the fifth time in six games after the White Sox threatened against Jim Johnson in the ninth. Chicago had the tying runs on after Conor Gillaspie and Jeff Keppinger singled with one out, putting men on first and second. Johnson struck out Gordon Beckham looking and retired pinch-hitter Jordan Danks on a bouncer to the mound for his 29th save in 34 attempts. Davis delivered the big hits for Baltimore. "I think its more a feeling of comfort than anything else," he said. "I feel comfortable in the box. I feel like Im seeing the ball well and getting good pitches to hit. I feel comfortable hitting with no strikes, one strike or two strikes." Already the club record holder for home runs before the All-Star break, he added to it leading off the fourth against Hector Santiago when he drove the first pitch just inside the foul pole to the left-field bullpen. That gave the Orioles a 2-1 lead, which Beckham wiped out when he led off the fifth with his first homer, but Davis came through again with one out in the eighth. He greeted Matt Thornton with two-run double on the first pitch he saw after Nick Markakis and Adam Jones singled off Matt Lindstrom (2-3), giving the Orioles a 4-2 lead. "Theyve got a guy thats hitting .330," Beckham said. "Driving in a million runs and hitting a million home runs. Hes really good. Its tough to say anything about our side, when hes doing what hes doing." Baltimore loaded the bases against Ramon Troncoso in the ninth, but Manny Machado forced the runner at the plate and Jones popped out to end the threat. Darren ODay (4-0) pitched a scoreless seventh and Tommy Hunter worked the eighhth before Johnson dodged that jam in the ninth.dddddddddddd Feldman looked sharp for Baltimore after being acquired in a trade with the Cubs the previous day. The right-hander allowed two runs and six hits and struck out six without a walk despite staying up until about 4 a.m. after flying back from Oakland -- mostly because of the excitement. He knew when he signed a one-year deal with the rebuilding Cubs there was a good chance hed be dealt if he pitched well, and thats exactly what happened. He landed on a contender thats now 11 games over .500, matching a season high. "Im going to miss those guys, but Im looking forward to a fresh start here and trying to get into the playoffs and do some things in the post-season," Feldman said. Santiago pitched well, giving up two runs and five hits in seven innings. The left-hander tied a season-high with nine strikeouts while walking two after getting hit hard in his previous start against Cleveland. But on a night when the Stanley Cup made an appearance, with the Blackhawks Patrick Sharp and Brandon Bollig throwing out first pitches, the White Sox took their 24th loss in 33 games. There was more bad news for the last-place White Sox, with slugger Paul Konerko (strained lower back) and reliever Jesse Crain (strained right shoulder) going on the 15-day disabled list. "I think if theres anything that could go wrong this year for the White Sox, its gone wrong," said Crain, one of Chicagos top trade assets. NOTES: The Orioles optioned IF Danny Valencia to Triple-A Norfolk to make room for Feldman. ... RHP Kevin Gausman will remain in bullpen for now, although manager Buck Showalter indicated Baltimores top pitching prospect could wind up back in the rotation at some point. "We have 70-something games left," he said. "We have to do some things between now and the All-Star break. He and Zach (Britton), both of them have options, we like them both on the club. I think these things kind of solve themselves." ... With Konerko and Crain on the DL, the White Sox recalled 3B Brent Morel from Triple-A Charlotte and purchased the contract of LHP David Purcey from the minor league club. ... Rios picked up his 200th steal when he swiped second in the first inning. ... The start of the game was delayed seven minutes by rain. ... LHP Zach Britton (2-2, 4.50 ERA) starts Thursday for Baltimore, with LHP Jose Quintana (3-2, 3.97) pitching for Chicago. ' ' '
