    LSU coach Les Miles has been fired four games into his 12th season with the school.

    Also out is offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who had been with the school since 2013. Ed Orgeron will be the interim coach for the remainder of the season.

    All three moves were announced Sunday by the school. The changes come one day after the Tigers fell to 2-2 on the season with an 18-13 loss at Auburn.

    “Decisions like this are never easy ones to make,” athletic director Joe Alleva said in a statement. “Coach Miles has done a tremendous job here and he’s been a great ambassador for our University, which makes this even more difficult.

    “However, it’s 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 haven’t 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.”

    The school will hold a press conference Monday afternoon to discuss the situation.

    Miles, who has coached LSU since 2005, leaves with a 114-34 overall record and a national title won in 2007. Since the start of the 2013, LSU has gone 15-11 against SEC opponents.

    He reportedly was close to be removed last season after a three-game losing streak last November. The Tigers rebounded with a win against Texas A&M in the final game of the regular season then dominated Texas Tech in the Texas Bowl to calm the situation.
