Leslie Edwin "Les" Miles (born November 10, 1953) is a former football coach who served as the head coach of the Oklahoma State Cowboys (2001-2004), the LSU Tigers (2005-2016) and the Kansas Jayhawks (2019-2020).

Miles is nicknamed "The Hat" for his signature white cap, as well as "The Mad Hatter" for his eccentricities and play-calling habits.[1] Prior to being a head coach, he was an assistant coach at Oklahoma State as well as at the University of Michigan, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and with the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). Miles led the 2007 LSU Tigers to a win in the BCS National Championship Game, defeating Ohio State.
