Nick Saban is no fan of how LSU unceremoniously fired Les Miles four games into the season.

“Les Miles is one of the most respected colleagues…I kind of hate it that a man wins a national championship, wins two SEC titles and doesn’t make it through the season….I have tremendous respect for Les Miles…”

In related news, sources told FootballScoop this morning that LSU’s committee, through representatives, plans to reach out to Saban to first gauge his interest in the job and second seek his counsel. Based on his comments here, I think it is safe to say his interest in working at LSU again is very low.

Our President since 2008, Scott oversees daily operations. An outstanding high school athlete (he wrote that), he chose to go pro in something other than playing football (i.e. he couldn't break a 5.0 40 yard dash). Prior to purchasing FootballScoop, Scott served as a vice president of The Shaw Group, a Fortune 500 company, for eight years.
