“I’m going to be in media and in a number of different places,” he said, “and I’m going to have a blast.”

He’s got time on his hands, so Les Miles is going to hit the broadcast trail, at least for one season.

“I’m a guy who knows a lot about football,” Miles said. “Certainly the situations and adjectives that describe college football are going to be something I’m easily accustomed to. I’ll be able to tell you after the first quarter what thoughts are going through the coach’s mind.

Adjectives are awesome.  I just wish somebody would pair him with Spurrier and let them call a game together.


UPDATE:  There’s all kinds of media.


UPDATE #2:  That didn’t take long.

SEC Network’s traveling pre-game show, SEC Nation presented by AT&T, is back for its fourth season on Saturday, Sept. 2, in a special three-hour edition (9 a.m. – noon ET) from Arlington, Texas, site of the Advocare Classic where the Florida Gators will face off with the Michigan Wolverines for both teams’ season openers. The show marks the first time SEC Nation has opened the season from a neutral site game and only the second time the show has aired from a neutral site city during the regular-season.

The show will include live reports, analysis and features surrounding all the Week One SEC football action…

Longtime LSU head coach Les Miles will serve as a guest analyst for the season opener. In addition to his extensive SEC background, Miles was a player and coach at Michigan. Miles’ former running back, Derrius Guice, will be featured in an in-depth story reported by Rutledge. Also, former South Carolina and longtime Florida head coach Steve Spurrier, and additional guests, will stop by the set throughout the telecast.

    I’m hoping he will give us the intricate details of the various flavors of grass found around the different SEC venues.

    That pair could even make a Nickels game entertainingly, uh maybe not after second thought.

    That should be fun. Always liked Miles, funny while not being an asshole.

    Les doesn’t take himself too seriously. I would live to see he and Spurrier call color of an SEC game with Danielson.

    Afraid he’s going to monetize his persona ala Yogi Berra

    Now THAT’S who we should’ve hired as an ST Analyst!
