Les Miles will speak at Rotary | Events
LSU Coach Les Miles will be the guest speaker at the Rotary Club on Wednesday, July 24 at noon. The Rotary Club meets at noon at Boudreaux's, 2647 Government Street, in Baton Rouge.
Now in his ninth year, Miles has proved to have a winning formula as the Tigers have won more games than any program in the Southeastern Conference over that span (85), while capturing a pair of SEC titles (2007, 2011) and reaching the BCS National Championship Game two times (LSU won the 2007 national title).
Since Miles took over in 2005, LSU has registered five top-10 finishes with three coming in the top five, won 10-plus games six times, produced 18 first-team All-Americans and had players win 11 national awards. LSU also leads the SEC with 51 NFL Draft picks during that span, which includes 12 first-round selections.
Miles has climbed to second in school history in career victories with 85, trailing only Charles McClendon, who won 137 games in 18 years with the Tigers. Miles is also the only coach in LSU history to beat Auburn, Florida and Alabama in same season - and he’s done it now three times – and in 2005, he became the only first-year coach in SEC history to lead a team to the league’s title game.
