Former LSU coach Les Miles and Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck remain the focal points of Purdues ongoing coaching search, multiple industry sources have told 247Sports in recent days.

Miles, one source says, is telling potential employers including Purdue that he intends to bring current Alabama offensive analysts Steve Sarkisian and Mike Locksley to serve on his offensive staff. One source told 247Sports that under Miles' sales pitch, Sarkisian, the former USC head coach, would serve as Miles principal play-caller while Locksley, the former New Mexico head coach, would likely serve as a run-game coordinator.

Sarkisian coached QBs at USC from 2005 through 2008, working as the offensive coordinator the final two seasons of that span.
