Former LSU head coach Les Miles spoke at the Nebraska Coaches Clinic in Lincoln, NE last Friday and told reporters and the media that he still wants to coach again. Per Omaha.com:
quote:

“I want to coach football,” Miles said. “That’s pretty simple. I want an opportunity at a place that can win and a place where they really want to invest in the players. If they do that, I’m good.”

Asked if he would be picky with his next stop or just itching to get back, Miles said: “It can be a different style of job, but then I’m going to be picky about the people that I work with and those things. All I need is an athletic director and a president that says, ‘Yeah, I want to be the best.’ ”

“I’m probably a better coach today than I was when I left LSU, and I was certainly a better coach in my last years at LSU than I was in my first years,” he said.

This is all a lie. Les didn't say any of that. Those are sentences. They are coherent.

Les : Wher's dat white jet with Michigan script in blue on its side? Find dat jet and start landing it where you want a job and you will surely get a long time contract.

I think Les is a good coach. He may have to take a smaller school and prove he can adapt his offensive scheme and philosophy. I don't see many P5 schools taking a chance on him after his exit at LSU. He was a great man and coach for the program.

Les should take the Frank Solich route: go to a mid-major MAC school, win your league regularly, go to a bowl game regularly and live comfortably without the stress of a P5 program.

"I’m probably a better coach today than I was when I left LSU" He must have had a lobotomy recently...

Good Luck Les, hope you find a lading spot, but not at LSU.

Les is a one trick pony. People that keep saying he refused to change have it all wrong. Two things: (1)He was not capable of change and (2)He was lazy. He enjoyed living in his oyster and didn't want anything to rock the boat. So glad he is gone I cant stand it. It also pisses me off that he was able to stick around the last few years he was here. We're still paying him to boot! Ambassador my foot.

Love this man, but hope he knows it was just time. He will not get a job at a big school, needs to aim for mid-major.

Wait until we are 6 games in this Fall...we will miss this man dearly. Greatest ambassador for our program there ever was. Should have never fired him. Shameful!

Other than possibly Florida, who do you see hanging with us in first 6 games?

Les is a good man and loved LSU dearly. I sincerely hope he gets the opportunity that he seeks. He is certainly an honorable man. (I just don't want him - or any other coach - to beat our Tigers.)

"I was certainly a better coach in my last years at LSU than I was in my first years,” he said." Now that is scary right there.

It's very telling. I honestly think he operates in a different reality.

never has a coach been given so much and done so little, just one horrible coach, but those who hired him are worse, and those who gave him his last extension should be shot

To those who continue to insist he didn't ride on Saban's coattails for all these years - think again. I can't blame Miles for seizing the opportunity to come to BR. However, I do blame those for fiddling while Rome was burning.

I feel for Les, but he did this to himself. He refused to change the stagnant, predictable offense that every team was ready for. And he was fired because of it. How does that make him a better coach? Also, he's been passed up by several schools this offseason, so it doesn't look good for him. Kinda like an actor who gets type cast after playing the same role for a long time. After it's over, it's hard to find work elsewhere. Les is a good man and I wish him well. I really think broadcasting is a natural fit for him and his offbeat vocabulary. Good luck Les! See ya!

Les killed his own coaching career by refusing to change. That's why several smaller schools have passed on him. They are afraid that he won't change or adapt offensively like he did here IMO.

Sad for Les, but he is either clueless or in denial or delusional or all three. He is a good man, a good recruiter, but a major underachieving HC for LSU, especially given all the talent he and his underachieving staff recruited.

Most points being made are ludicrous. Thing working g against him the most is his age. Seriously, people's gripe is that he lost in the national championship? How many programs would give anything to be in that game? And yes, teams since then have lost by more.
