Les Miles is on the hot seat according to multiple reports but if the post game press conference is any indication, Miles is in no danger of losing the support of his players, according to The Advocate's Ross Dellenger.

No. 15 LSU lost for the third consecutive week Saturday, falling to No. 22 Ole Miss 38-17. The loss doesn't bode well for Miles, especially after a LSU Board of Supervisors member said the coach could be fired, even if the Tigers (7-3, 4-3 SEC) won their two remaining games.

Whether that's the case or not, players flocked to Miles' side after the game, defending their coach. Defensive back Jalen Mills, defensive tackle Christian LaCouture and linebacker Deion Jones all voiced their support.

Miles and his players will look to salvage what is left of their season next Saturday against Texas A&M. The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. EST on the SEC Network.
