If Miles is such a great coach, then why isn't the NFL calling?

Miles record is one of the best in NCAA. However, it can't be proven whether or not many other guys could have done the same thing, so no point in arguing it.

What do NFL teams see in other coaches that they don't see in Les Miles? Any other coach with that kind of NCAA record would have been rumored to be NFL bound at some point in their coaching career, yet everyone knows no NFL team would even consider letting him be the head coach of a team.

Miles best assets are recruiting and mentoring young players.

NFL coaches have way more media responsibilities and that is probably the area Les Miles sucks the most at.

When was the last time Les Miles answered a football/team/strategy question and gave an answer that made sense or that you enjoyed?

Spurrior and Saban were such great NFL coaches.

Miles would be a horrible NFL coach. I would be very surprised if he ever would even try the NFL or if he would ever be offered.

coaching status is not determined by whether or not an NFL team comes calling.

Our last guy got a lot of NFL attention and that turned out pretty shitty for LSU nation.

As long as Miles keeps winning ballgames, I don't give two shits what the NFL thinks of him.

"The wacky, Mad Hatter rep made some NFL executives who considered hiring him nervous, I'm told. They weren't certain if he had the maturity to be an NFL head coach, so in the end, they stayed away.

That is changing drastically. After interviews with several team executives, it has become clear Miles has vaulted near the top of some lists as the next hottest NFL coaching candidate."

CBSSports last year


"Way back in late September, Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com wrote that the perception some NFL executives have of the “wacky, Mad Hatter” persona of Les Miles “is changing drastically” and the LSU coach “will definitely be pursued by teams in need of a head coach at the end of the season.”

It’s not yet at the end of the season, but, with head-coaching axes already swinging in a couple of NFL cities, Miles’ name is already being attached to a professional vacancy."

NBCSports last year



Despite all the shite talked about CLM, he actually still wants to be at LSU. With all the coaches anxious to jump to the next big thing, he is one that actually wants stability and to build something. It's the same reason he has said since day 1, he would prefer a longer contract than higher pay. He wants to be at LSU, it is a destination job to him. It's why he has passed on Michigan twice, and Arkansas with more money.

If he ran it like CEO, and allowed good coordinators to run their own side of the ball, he would do well.

However, he would probably frick up the offensive side there, too.

Newsflash: Not every college coach succeeds in the NFL.

Because NFL coaches don't use phrases like "we have a want for victory" or the word "capable" in every sentence!
He should use this sentence instead, We have a want for a new Offensive Coord and then we could be very capable of winning every game every year!

There's been some interest in him as an NFL coach.

quote:

"He's the most intriguing coaching prospect I've seen in a long time," said one team executive. "I think he has a great deal of talent and can deal with the modern athlete."

And that is what I've heard repeatedly about Miles from team executives. Their belief is that Miles is, as one told me, the next Jimmy Johnson in terms of knowing how to coach the 21st-century player. Take that comparison as you like, but to me there's no bigger compliment since Johnson deftly handled a Cowboys locker room full of gigantic egos.


Also not every successful college coach is considered a fit in the NFL. Urban Meyer has never been pursued by the NFL, is he a bad coach?

Good college coach =/= good NFL coach
and vice versa.

We all know Saban wasn't too good in the NFL and it wouldn't surprise me if bill belichick was mediocre in college.
