Bobby Jindal tweets support for Les Miles
While it appears Les Miles may no longer have many supporters within LSU, he has atleast one in the Louisiana government.
Reports have been swirling for most of the week that Saturday’s game between LSU and Texas A&M will be Miles’ last on the sideline for the Tigers. He reportedly told a group of boosters that Saturday would be his last game. While it looks as though the university wants him out, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal took to his Twitter account and issued a statement hoping Miles is able to keep his job.
.@LSUCoachMiles is a great coach and a better man. He is a fantastic ambassador for our state. I hope he remains our coach.

Miles has been at LSU since 2005 and has coached the team to a 110-32 record, including two SEC championships and one national championship. If he was to be relieved of his duties, Miles would be owed a $15 million buyout from the school.
Jimbo Fisher has been a name frequently left to fill the potential vacancy. Prior to being named offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Florida State, Fisher held the same positions at LSU under Nick Saban and Les Miles.
