Are you asking, in other words, which players that played at LSU, under the Les Miles [i]coaching staff[/i], would have been able to play in the NFL straight out of high school, and received no tangible benefit from the coaching received by Les Miles and his staff?

I really don't get the behavior modification thing. Why have a magical elf from the North Pole (which I think is supposed to be a magical, happy place), who has a direct line to Santa (you know, the jolly guy that brings toys to everyone) be your tool for keeping kids in line?

Miles is 102-27 in 9+ years at LSU. That's 79%. Your statement makes no sense.
Edit: Saw you added "for career." I'd only include coaches who have coached as long or longer. Otherwise it's apples to oranges.
Remember, Hal Hunter had a 1.000 winning percentage....
