Players react to Les Miles' firing

After 114 wins, a BCS National Championship and two SEC championships, Les Miles is no longer the head coach at LSU. Miles, along with LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron were let go, after a bad loss to Auburn to drop their record to 2-2.


Safety Jamal Adams says Miles spoke with the team before he left.

"That man is so passionate about LSU. He's been here for 12 years, he recruited me," said Adams. "I think that he was very emotional as far as letting go."

Senior wide receiver Travin Dural of Breaux Bridge says he showed up to a 5:00 meeting and never thought he would be told that Miles was let go.

"I'm still surprised. I wasn't expecting this at all," said Dural. "Coach Miles is a great coach and he's done a lot of great things for this program."

South LaFourche High School and Northwestern State grad, Ed Orgeron, takes over as the interim head coach. He was the Tigers defensive line coach and a former head coach at Ole Miss and interim head coach at USC. Dural looks forward to what Coach “O” can bring to the team.

"He's very energetic and has a lot of energy. He's always ready to go," said Dural. "He knows a lot about football, he's been in this position before so I'm expecting him to have some success."
