Nebraska fans want Les Miles to ditch broadcast booth, come down and coach team
Things aren’t going so well for the Nebraska Cornhuskers right now, as they are trailing Northern Illinois 21-17 in the fourth quarter in Lincoln.
To make matters even more interesting, Les Miles is in the broadcast booth calling the game for FOX Sports 1.
Many Nebraska fans are aware of that, and would love nothing more than to have the former LSU coach come down from the booth and take over for current head coach Mike Riley.
Considering Miles’ son, Ben, plays for the Huskers, it could be an interesting fit, should Riley actually get fired.
Here are some of the tweets calling for Miles to stay in Lincoln after the FS1 broadcast is over:
Hey @CoachLesMiles…you would look and sound 20x better about 100 rows below you with a headset on and in red!

Fire Mike Riley hire Les Miles

As a lifelong Husker fan, I'm begging for it. I'd take Les Miles asking Brando to hold his beer and waking down from the box to take over.

Les Miles is in the booth literally rooting and cheering on Nebraska. Hilarious stuff. (His son plays on team)

He's actually calling the game right now, but do you know what school/program makes a lot of sense for Les Miles?

I'm calling it, Les Miles to Nebraska. The Cornhuskers are a dumpster fire.

Reminder to Mike Riley…Les Miles and Chip Kelly are available. Sleep tight. #FireMikeRiley

It’ll be interesting to see what happens in Lincoln moving forward, especially if Nebraska can’t come back to beat Northern Illinois.
