Here are the highlights from LSU coach Les Miles’ weekly press conference on Monday.

Several reports have indicated the school going in a different direction at head coach. That was obviously the main focus of the media in the early portion of the presser. While a lot is still under speculation, Miles did make one thing clear.

Miles fielded several other questions regarding his job.

Miles was asked if he was hurt or upset about some of the info that was leaked recently with regards to his job situation.

Miles eventually transitioned to talk about last week’s game against Ole Miss. Miles was pleased with the team’s offense, which racked up a bunch of yardage that didn’t translate into points in the 38-17 loss.

Miles said special teams was the silver lining in the loss.

Miles also looked ahead to this week’s matchup against Texas A&M and made reference to former LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis, who now holds the same position with the Aggies.

Miles took the time to defend RB Leonard Fournette.

Miles also gave an injury update on two key players, OT Jerald Hawkins and WR Travin Dural.
