ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Les Miles sat for more than hour, a Kansas pin on his left lapel and his LSU national championship ring on his right hand, answering wave after wave of often repetitive questions as he closes in on his return to coaching — and the Big 12 — with the long-suffering Jayhawks.

The session started with whether the one-game suspension for running back Pooka Williams in a domestic case was too short, and ended with the 65-year-old reminiscing about leaving the Dallas Cowboys for Oklahoma State and his first shot as a head coach nearly two decades ago.

In between, the theme was pretty consistent. The 2011 national coach of the year believes he’ll soon be back where he belongs after 2½ years away: on the sideline.
