Just when you thought you have seen it all, we have this ” a press conference two hours before the SEC Championship Game.
LSU coach Les Miles called it to address ESPN’s report that he will be named Michigan’s head coach next week.
“There was misinformation on ESPN and I think it’s imperative that I straighten it out,” Miles said. “I’m the head coach at LSU, I will be the head coach at LSU. I have no interest in talking to anybody else. I have a championship game to play, and I am excited about the opportunity of my damn strong football team.
“That is really all I would like to say. It was unfortunate that I had to address my team with this information this morning, that being done, I think they will be ready to play. There will be no questions for me. I represent me in this issue. Please ask me after. Thank you very much, have a great day.”
LSU athletic director Skip Bertman said Miles told his team he intends to stay at LSU and would not be going to Michigan.
Miles was clearly angry that he had to address the story before the Tigers’ game with Tennessee. But it was strange that Miles felt the need to deal with it. Shouldn’t his mind be on the game?
Clearly, the man was angry.
