LSU puts Les Miles out to pasture

first_imgLes Miles has chewed on his last blade of grass as head coach of the LSU football team, after 12 years leading the program. Today, the school announced it has officially fired “The Hat”, and his offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, following LSU’s 18 -13 loss to a mediocre Auburn team.The loss dropped LSU to a disappointing 2 -2 for the year, after many preseason polls had them ranked in the Top 5. Apparently, LSU had finally seen enough, after a year and a half of dry humping the idea of firing Miles. Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron will act as interim coach through the end of the season, as he did when Lane Kiffin was canned from USC.Miles took over after Nick Saban left LSU for the Dolphins in 2005. He won a national title in 2007, but despite wave after wave of elite NFL talent, failed to win another.His endearing quirks, like eating grass off the field, and steel spined 4th down calls, eventually gave way to fan and program frustrations with an offense that refused to evolve in the era of the spread, and could never find an elite quarterback. Advertisement Adapt, mutate, or die running an antiquated 1990’s high school offense at a major college football power. That’s from Charles Darwin or something.Colin is on record saying Bob Stoops would be a perfect fit to replace Miles. If it’s offense you want, it’s offense you’ll get. Houston’s Tom Herman may be the leader in the clubhouse.Here’s Colin’s full rant  on why Stoops to LSU makes sense.center_img “If Bob Stoops wants to be the best Bob Stoops, he should take that LSU job.” – @ColinCowherd #HerdHere— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) September 17, 2016last_img read more
