Fire Les Miles momentum builds: LSU coach under heavy fire

LSU football coach Les Miles was almost fired after last season but he managed to come back for the 2016 campaign. But even though this season is young, Miles is already facing heavy pressure in the media and from fans on Twitter and beyond.

The fire Les Miles movement gained momentum after LSU’s heartbreaking 18-13 last-minute loss to a struggling Auburn team Saturday night.

Here’s some sources for the pressure against LSU’s Miles:

–Ron Higgins, columnist for nola.com and the Times-Picuyane, writes “Time’s up for Les Miles, not a second to waste.”

–A columnist from Fox Sports writes that LSU should not delay in doing the inevitable: “Why LSU needs to fire Les Miles now.”  “They should fire him as soon as possible.”

–From CBS Sports: “Les Miles’ time at LSU has run out.” “It’s just about over for the Mad Hatter in Baton Rouge,” writes Jon Solomon. “Because let’s be honest: It’s over from here on out. The only question is the expiration date.”

–There was also satire, like this on Twitter: “Dear LSU, Please don’t fire Les Miles. Sincerely, The State of Alabama.”
