(WVUE) -

Les Miles was fired from his job as LSU head coach at the end of September 2016 and it's taken him almost a full year to find a new gig but Tuesday, FOX Sports announced that the 63-year-old will be part of their college football coverage this season.

The national championship-winner will serve as a game analyst, starting September 16th, when he calls a Nebraska home game against Northern Illinois. Due to the Southeastern Conference's television contracts, it is unlikely Miles will ever call an LSU game.

All the while playing just 45 percent of the Saints offensive snaps. Kamara ran away with the NFL's Off...more>>

    Terrell "Smoke" Brown racked up numerous yards out of the backfield for John Ehret in three seasons. "Smoke" is a gamechanger, but for Brown's senior season, he'll be scoring touchdowns at Helen Cox. "Linebacker is five yards away from you. Are you the kind of running back that runs over him, or around him?" "It depends on what he do. It's either me or him, and I choose me," said Helen Cox running back Terrell Brown.  "Are you a vio...more>>
