I like Les (as a person) and wouldn't mind him being affiliated with the university in come capacity, but the age of putting coaches in this position seems is a thing of the past.

Does it reduce the buyout amount so we can buyout O? If so, I'm in.

Done with the impulse hires. Even buying a piece of arse on impulse could get you in trouble.

Les can't even manage a clock, and you think he should manage a 100+ million dollar budget. sometimes I wonder if half of you can even dress yourselves

Mississippi State and South Carolina just did it, but I’m with you, we need a proven AD.

No - buyouts ate really income guarantees. But at least we'd be paying him to work instead of paying him to not work. Plus he's funny and entertaining, so he'd be a good draw at fundraising events.

He has a degree in Economics from the University of Michigan you fricking nincompoop. A halfwit like yourself couldn't even get a job mopping floors there.

If there is any doubt about Miles' continued stature at LSU, here is his updated bio on lsusports.net. Feel free to mull it over

LINK


quote:

Miles’ 112 overall wins at LSU ranks him behind only Charles McClendon, who won 137 games in 18 years with the Tigers, while the 64 SEC regular season victories were just one shy of tying McClendon’s school record of 65.

Miles is also the only coach in LSU history to beat Auburn, Florida and Alabama in same season – doing it three times – and in 2005, he became the first first-year coach in SEC history to lead a team to the league’s title game.

In the classroom, 242 football players earned their degree since Miles took over, and two out of the last four years LSU has ranked No. 2 in the SEC in graduation rates. Under Miles, LSU produced 187 players who have earned SEC Academic Honor Roll status.

Known by his players as being compassionate, caring and as their coach for a lifetime, the true impact that Miles had on his team and the role that he played in their development on and off the field was easily witnessed following LSU’s 19-7 win over Texas A&M on Nov. 28, 2015 when the Tigers carried their coach off the field on their shoulders in what was one of the most magnificent moments in Tiger Stadium history.


quote:

The 2005 season served as the starting point for what became the best 10-year stretch of football in school history, one that saw the Tigers win more games than any other school in the SEC during that span.

Miles holds the distinction of being the only coach in SEC history to win at least 11 games five times during his first seven years in the league.

Miles, who is 140-53 overall in 14 years as a head coach, has compiled a 112-32 record at LSU, which includes a remarkable 63-28 record in SEC regular season games.

Miles is the fastest coach in LSU history to reach milestone victories of 10 (11 games), 20 (24), 30 (35), 40 (48), 50 (63), 60 (76), 70 (87), 80 (98), 90 (113), 100 (126), and 110 (133).

He's also won 42 games against top-25 teams and 16 against teams in the top 10. On 24 occasions, Miles has led the Tigers to a comeback win in either the fourth quarter or overtime. LSU has been ranked in the Top 25 for 137 of 142 games under Miles.


quote:

MEDIA DARLING

Another thing that tends to set Miles apart from many of his peers is that of his personality and his ability to have fun, while at the same time running an elite football program.

One of Les Miles' most impressive qualities is that of the time he spends giving to and helping causes that benefit others. He often calls or visits sick LSU fans in the hospital, many times showing up unannounced and without even being asked.

Each year, Miles and his wife Kathy host an event that generates over $100,000 for the Children's Miracle Network in Baton Rouge. In addition, he is active in other community service events such as the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center annual fundraiser, the Special Olympics and the Baton Rouge Children's Advocacy Center Celebrity Waiter Event. In the summer of 2013, Miles rappelled down a 24-story building in downtown Baton Rouge to help bring awareness to adoption in Louisiana.

Miles spent a week in June of 2006 taking part in the USO Tour, where the Tiger head coach visited American Troops serving in Kuwait and Iraq. Miles was joined on the tour, which serves as a morale booster for the troops serving abroad, by former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz and Tampa Bay Rays owner Vincent Naimoli.

The week-long trip took Miles to several U.S. bases in Kuwait and then on to Iraq, where he visited with hundreds of American troops and even flew over the city of Baghdad in a Black Hawk helicopter.






And for all of the idiots that act like Miles couldn't have succeeded without riding Saban's coat tails:

quote:

In four short years, Miles turned the Oklahoma State football program into one that was nationally competitive, despite competing in-state against one of the country's dominant programs.

Miles led the Cowboys to three-straight bowl appearances, an accomplishment Oklahoma State had not achieved since Jimmy Johnson started a string of three-straight post-season games beginning in 1983. In addition, Oklahoma State's appearance in the Cotton Bowl to cap the 2003 season marked the first time in 55 years that the Cowboys appeared in a January bowl game.

As head coach at Oklahoma State, he built a consistent winner out of a program that had recorded only one winning season since 1988, and had posted a record of 13-20 in the three years prior to his arrival at OSU. After going 4-7 in his first year as head coach in 2001, he took the Cowboys to consecutive winning marks of 8-5 in 2002, 9-4 in 2003 and 7-5 in 2004.

Miles led Oklahoma State to a four-year record of 28-21 for a winning percentage of 57.1, the best career winning percentage for an OSU coach since Jim Lookabaugh ended his career in Stillwater in 1949.

Miles was the 2002 Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year after directing his second Oklahoma State team to an 8-5 record and the school's first bowl appearance since 1997.





That is all from LSU's website.

re: Les Miles for AD
I think he would do well as a fundraiser, but what makes you think he would be good at hiring and firing coaches? Hell, he had a shaky at best record of hiring assistants as head football coach.
