Could Les Miles be a wanted man at Notre Dame?
One Louisiana native seems to like the idea of the former LSU coach becoming the next head coach at Notre Dame.
Jerry Tillery, a sophomore defensive lineman at Notre Dame, liked a couple of tweets of fans who want Miles to take over as the Fighting Irish’s next head coach. Brian Kelly has led Notre Dame to a 2-5 start after Saturday’s home loss to Stanford.

Tillery is from Shreveport, La., and was one of the rare top prospects from Louisiana to leave the state. He was the No. 5 prospect from Louisiana in the 2015 recruiting class. He has 3.0 tackles for loss this season.
Miles, who has strong ties to Michigan, has not announced what is next for him. Miles was fired by LSU in September after the Tigers got off to a 2-2 start.
UPDATE: Tillery noticed that the internet had seen his likes and responded that he and his teammates are still committed to Kelly.
Likes don't = endorsements. We're committed to this team and these coaches. #goirish
