Les Miles says it would be dif­fi­cult ‘not be­ing a coach’

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Les Miles says he didn’t fight for his job when LSU fired him, but he doesn’t think he is ready to be done with coach­ing.

The 62-year-old Miles spoke to “The Dan Pa­trick Show” on Mon­day, a day af­ter be­ing let go by LSU. The Tigers fell to 2-2 af­ter a last-sec­ond loss at Auburn on Satur­day.

Miles says he was in­formed face-to-face of the de­ci­sion by LSU ath­letic direc­tor Joe All­eva. He says, “I ac­cepted that out­come and I will sup­port this de­ci­sion and these Tigers as we go for­ward.”

Miles added that he is not ready to re­tire, say­ing “I would have a dif­fi­cult time not be­ing in­volved in the game and not be­ing a coach.”

In 12-plus-sea­sons at LSU, Miles won 114 games and a na­tional cham­pi­onship.
