Erstwhile LSU coach Les Miles is still rippin’ and roarin’ and go-gettin’ out there, ready to win a national championship for some lucky suitor.
Sports Illustrated/FOX Sports found an energetic and downright jubilant Miles handing out candy at the door at his home in Baton Rouge. He’s been studying film and weighing his many potential options, but then down into the meat of the thing he was asked about whether he was open to adaptation, a criticism of his coaching at LSU.
Miles said he was, so long as that player was like Cam Newton, MVP of the NFL.
“Oh, absolutely,” he said. “The evolution is always based on where your best talent is. I’m a guy that very comfortably sees the guys he has and can adapt. We can be gun run and throw 50% or more of the time. I can be very comfortable with a Cam Newton-style of player at quarterback. Or we can have a guy more comfortable back in the pocket. The reason we’ve had longevity is that we’ve had the ability to evolve and we will always evolve.”
Hear that, Cam Newtons? Les Miles would be glad to have you at his school, wherever that may be.
