Part of LSU coach Les Miles’ charm is his eloquence. Although the words that comes out of his mouth may be confusing and outlandish at times, Miles occasionally delivers a profound message.
LSU tailback Leonard Fournette joked about Miles’ charisma during media availability on Monday.
“He has a way with words,” Fournette said, according to NOLA.com’s Jim Kleinpeter. “Sometimes it may take you a week to figure out what he really said, but it’s just fun.”
Fournette said there were moments when Miles had the Tigers seeking clarification, sometimes during practice.
“There’s plenty of examples when we’re practicing and he’s explaining something to the team everybody’s kind of looking at each other like ‘What’s that mean?’”
Thankfully, Fournette said the coaches translate the key components of Miles’ message to his players.
“Actually the coaches decipher for us,” Fournette said. “Because we go back once we’re out of practice we go back and ask them ‘What Coach Miles said?’ And they go back and make it simpler for us.”
