FOX adds Les Miles as college football analyst
Tuesday, FOX Sports announced that Les Miles has been hired by the network as a college football analyst. You won’t be able to hear the Mad Hatter right away as Miles’ first game won’t come until Week 3, a matchup between Northern Illinois and Nebraska in Lincoln. Interestingly, one of Miles’ sons, Ben, is a true freshman fullback for the Cornhuskers.
The hiring comes nearly a month after Miles indicated that, following an audition with FOX, he wouldn’t be doing television this year. Miles reversed course nearly two weeks later, stating that he’s “going to be in media and in a number of different places” for the college football season this fall.
One other different place for Miles is the SEC Network as the former LSU head coach will serve as a guest analyst for their pregame show, SEC Nation, ahead of the Florida-Michigan opener in Arlington.
In addition to Miles’ hiring, FOX also confirmed the hiring of former Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich and former Florida State quarterback Danny Kanell as college football analysts. Kanell was a part of ESPN’s latest purge of talent this past April.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/fox-adds-les-miles-as-college-football-analyst/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/140922_SNUT_LesMiles.jpg.CROP_.promo-mediumlarge.jpg?fit=590%2C421&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/140922_SNUT_LesMiles.jpg.CROP_.promo-mediumlarge.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1ACCAmerican AthleticBig 12Big TenConference USAMountain WestNCAAFPac-12Recent PostsSun BeltSunbeltFOX,Fox Sports,Les Miles,LSU TigersTuesday, FOX Sports announced that Les Miles has been hired by the network as a college football analyst.
