Les Miles, the new head coach at Kansas, is this week’s guest on Angelique S. Chengelis’ “View from the Press Box” podcast.
Miles, 65, was an offensive lineman at Michigan under Bo Schembechler and went on to become an assistant coach for the Wolverines.
He eventually became head coach at Oklahoma State and LSU, and led the Tigers to the national championship in 2007.
Miles discusses a number of topics in this edition of “View from the Press Box,” including his time at Michigan with Schembechler and his disappointment at not getting the UM head coaching job.
“The Lord blessed with me with the opportunity to have been at Michigan and have been around the quality coaches I had,” Miles tells Chengelis. “I would want everybody to have the experience I had in my college years going to Michigan and then in coaching. I was getting a BA in economics but I also was getting a masters in football coaching. Coach Schembechler was just very special.”
