MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Southeastern Conference coaches aren't in any rush to expand.

LSU's Les Miles says expansion would make it difficult to set up schedules fairly, and he hopes it doesn't happen anytime soon.

Georgia coach Mark Richt says other power conferences are more likely than the SEC to expand.

There has been talk of expansion from both the Big Ten and Pac-10, and SEC coaches fielded expansion questions during a teleconference Thursday.

SEC commissioner Mike Slive says the league would consider expanding if it's necessary to maintain its position because of significant growth in other leagues.

Alabama coach Nick Saban says a lot of teams would be interested if the SEC grew to 16 teams.
