After 10 years as the head coach at LSU, Les Miles recently wrote Baton Rouge a thank you letter. And it's awesome.
quote:

Dear Baton Rouge,

It's hard to believe that it's now been nearly 10 years that my family has called you home. We have come to love everything about this wonderful city and state. From the food, the people, and of course LSU, I can't imagine living anywhere else.

I have watched my four children grow up here and Kathy and I have been honored and proud to have been part of such a great community. Whether it's been on the soccer field, swimming pool or baseball diamond, my kids have had great opportunities growing up here. They've made friendships and created memories that will last a lifetime and for that, I'm grateful.

As the head football coach at LSU, I'm fortunate to represent a great university and coach outstanding young men who are passionate about their school and their football.

You have also allowed me the opportunity to coach in what is the finest college football town in America. There's nothing like a Saturday in the fall on the LSU campus, especially when it's a night game in Tiger Stadium. With the sun setting in the Western Sky and "Calling Baton Rouge" playing during pre-game to get the crowd into a frenzy, there's no better place than Tiger Stadium.

So, thank you Baton Rouge, for being such a unique and wonderful place. It's truly an honor to call you home.

Geaux Tigers!

Les Miles
LSU Head Coach

I have supported Les Miles since day one and I still do. To me, he proved himself after Katrina when he managed to keep that team together and go
11-2 in his 1st year with a new staff including two coordinators he had never worked with before. He proved to me that we had the right man for the job and I am glad he is still here and hope he can finish his career here. Thank you Coach and good luck. Now go knock-out Wisconsin.
