Matt Flynn to those asking for Les Miles to be fired: 'Be careful what you ask for'
New Orleans Saints backup quarterback Matt Flynn, LSU’s starter during their 2007 national title campaign under Les Miles, supported the Tigers coach on Wednesday.
Several reports indicate the team is prepared to part ways with Miles, who’s been the program’s coach since 2005. According to ESPN, a source said Tuesday that a decision likely wouldn’t be made until after LSU’s game against Texas A&M this Saturday.
Matt Flynn asked: "Would it be a mistake to fire Les Miles?" Answer: " yeah, it'd be off the cuff."
