If former LSU head coach Les Miles has his way, he’ll be back on the sidelines in no time. However, it looks like he will be taking a bit of a pit stop before he ends up with a team.
His daughter, Smacker Miles, told Aaron Suttles of TIDE 102.9 that she would love to see him take a media job as well, per The Advocate:
“I’m really trying to convince him to do media now,” she said. “I would really love to work with him, but I think he still really wants to coach.”
It looks like the younger Miles might get the chance to live her dream and get in the booth or on the desk with her dad. After finishing up her career at the University of Texas at Austin, Smacker Miles is reportedly pursuing a journalism career and was in attendance at SEC Media Days.
Les Miles has been out of a job since late September 2016 and, in some ways, that is bizarre. His entire exit as the head coach of the LSU Tigers was strange in nature and, given Miles’ track record, his unemployment for the 2017 college football season is also unusual.
