Les Miles returned to LSU's Tiger Stadium on Saturday as his 2007 National Championship team was honored at halftime.  It was a bit surreal for the former Tiger head coach, coming back just a year after he was fired mid-season by the team.  Miles joined WWL Radio's "Double Coverage" on Tuesday night and recounted the very warm reception he got from fans.

"It made me smile," Miles said.  "I'm attached to (the fans).  The one thing that they do know about me is I love my team, I love representing the Tigers, and I love taking the field at (LSU) . . . Death Valley is really where opponents dreams come to die.  I was very touched, very touched."

Miles even took his trademark taste of grass when he took the field . "The grass had a familiar taste," he said.  "Trust me I knew what I was going for there."

Miles is currently an analyst for Fox Sports and is planning on doing work for the Big Ten Network.  He also is hosting his own podcast that allows him to recount some of his favorite memories as a Tiger coach, and comments on the lives of his children, all of which are, or will, be playing Division I college sports. 

"It's a lot of fun.  We don't take ourself too seriously and we have a lot of fun," he says about the podcast, which you can find at ThePlayersTribune.com
