Advocate staff photo by RICHARD ALAN HANNON -- LSU football coach Les Miles comments on offensive tackle La'el Collins' decision to stay for his senior season during a news conference Tuesday.

While one candidate emerged Tuesday as a possibility for LSU’s new offensive line coach, head coach Les Miles said he doesn’t expect a hire to be made in the next week.

“I wouldn’t think for, oh, a week, 10 days,” Miles said when asked about a timetable for a replacement for Greg Studrawa.

Miles spoke at a press conference Tuesday announcing the return of several junior players, namely left tackle La’el Collins.
