Former LSU football coach Les Miles will be returning to Tiger Stadium on Saturday.
This week, it was announced in a report from The Advocate that LSU will be celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the 2007 national championship team that was led by Miles.
Miles was fired by athletic director Joe Alleva, who will be at the ceremony, after four games last season.
The ceremony will come at halftime of LSU’s game against Auburn which is the last team Miles made an appearance against as a head coach.
From the report:
The former LSU coach will be part of the program’s celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the 2007 national championship team. Miles is scheduled to join players from that ’07 team during a reunion on the field at halftime of the Tigers’ game against Auburn, he confirmed in a message Monday night. Miles, 63, still lives in Baton Rouge and remains an avid supporter of the program he led for nearly 12 years.
Since his firing, Miles has served as a college football analyst on FOX Sports and ESPN and he will be a guest studio analyst for CBS next month.
During his tenure at LSU, Miles compiled a career record of 114-34, the second most wins in LSU history.
Miles was also able to lead the Tigers to two SEC Championships and the 2007 national title.
