Les Miles and Kansas have spoken about the Jayhawks' open head coaching job

Les Miles and Kansas have spoken about the program's open head coaching job, sources tell CBS Sports. There seems to be mutual interest between the parties.

Miles was listed by CBS Sports as a top candidate at KU earlier this week. However, at that time, the two sides had not yet spoken.

Kansas athletic director Jeff Long said Sunday that he prefers "an experienced head coach" to replace David Beaty. Long also said he wants to hire a replacement "sooner rather than later."

Recruiting pressures related to the Dec. 19 early signing period could have factored into his decision to fire Beaty with a month left in the regular season.

"There really isn't a frontrunner," Long told reporters on Sunday. "I'm going to be looking for a leader of young men, someone who has maybe a history and track record of building a program, because we have to build a program and it's really important to do that."

Miles, who turns 65 on Saturday, was one of the nation's top coaches during his 12 years at LSU. He won 77 percent of his games and led the Tigers to a pair of SEC titles and the 2007 national championship.
