Man. Myth. Part-time adrenaline junkie.
All of these words describe LSU head coach Les Miles, who reaffirmed his status as the most interesting man in college football this May by gripping and ripping on plastic hoops and Bob Seger at a charity event for children.
Greg Smith of BlackSportsOnline (h/t Andrew Holleran of College Spun) spotted video of Miles going to town with a hula hoop and singing Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” at this year's Cooking in Central event.
His commitment to hula-hooping was far from total, though he did manage some impressive arm-hooping.
“Hey, watch the technique,” Miles told onlookers before failing completely.
What Miles lacked in hip-swiveling he more than made up for in Seger, however. Coach brought the business to the microphone.
And thus another day passed in the life of Miles, the grass-gobbling coach born with everything but a single care to give.
As Tigers fans can attest, hula-hooping is far from their coach’s most ridiculous charity stunt. Miles nearly broke the Internet in 2013 when he rappelled down the side of a 24-story building to promote child adoption.
That’s Les Miles—anything for a good cause.
The Tigers kick off their season against Wisconsin on August 30. We can only presume Miles will participate in a furious downhill cheese wheel race to commemorate the matchup and raise money for orphans.
