Former LSU Head Coach Les Miles says he’s looking forward to his return to Tiger Stadium this weekend as the 10-year-anniversary of the 2007 National Championship team is celebrated.
Miles says he’ll be honored to stand with that team again at halftime during the Tigers game against Auburn.
"It will be a wonderful time for me and my family, because we'll all be going back," said Miles. "It's a place where we've enjoyed the people that we met."
The reunion will be Miles’ first return to Tiger Stadium since his firing in September of last year. The Hat says when LSU called and invited him to be part of the ceremony, he immediately said yes.
"I can't imagine that I would feel anything but honored to come back and be a part of that team," said Miles. "And to come back to the place that I had great success."
Miles says the ’07 squad deserves every bit of recognition Death Valley can muster.
"They were very committed to the team, to their state," said Miles. "They are a pretty special group of men."
Miles' coaching record while at LSU; 114 wins, 34 losses.
Kickoff for LSU versus Auburn is slated for 2:30pm.
