Cancel culture is currently devouring everything in its past.
Anyone who ever made a mistake in human history runs the risk of being “canceled.”
And one championship football coach’s career is over after a humiliating sex scandal.
Kansas Jayhawks football coach Les Miles was forced out of the school after revelations at his former school, the LSU Tigers.
Miles led the Tigers to a national championship in 2007 and several other 10-win seasons, but was fired in 2016 after years of fielding subpar offenses.
Now Miles is gone from Kansas because of a recent report released by LSU alleging misconduct against Miles from his time at the school.
The University of Kansas and Les Miles have mutually agreed to part ways effective immediately.

From the Associated Press:
“LSU released a 148-page review by a law firm about the university’s handling of sexual misconduct complaints campus-wide. One part described how Miles ‘tried to sexualize the staff of student workers in the football program by, for instance, allegedly demanding that he wanted blondes with big breasts, and ‘pretty girls.’
The report also revealed then-LSU athletic director Joe Alleva recommended firing Miles in 2013 to university officials.”
So Miles was fired from his current job because of allegations at his former job.
This will undoubtedly end Miles’s career as it did former Baylor head coach Art Briles.
Athletic Director Jeff Long, a long-time friend of Miles, also resigned amid backlash from the allegations.
Kansas has been the worst FBS football program for over a decade; Miles had an abysmal 3-18 record, although he did end the school’s 48-game road losing streak against Power 5 opponents.
Ironically, the last time Kansas fielded a good football team, Mark Mangino was the coach, but he was fired for alleged verbal abuse toward players.
Mangino led Kansas to a 12-1 record and an Orange Bowl victory in 2007, uncharted territory for a historically miserable program.
It’s not surprising that Miles was canceled for supposed sexual misconduct.
The #MeToo movement put several prominent men—and in rare cases, women—on the chopping block.
New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s political career hangs in the balance as allegations of sexual harassment mount against him.
The #MeToo movement was put on life support after Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade was almost entirely ignored by the so-called mainstream media, but it could be making a comeback.
As politics creeps more into sports, political correctness will put coaches in jeopardy of losing their jobs.
Oklahoma State Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy was forced to apologize for wearing a One America News T-shirt while on a fishing trip.
Miles’s lurid history at LSU meant he didn’t have a chance of surviving.
