Miles was about 35-40 minutes late for his weekly press luncheon Monday, when LSU athletic director Joe Alleva came to the podium and announced Miles had gone to the hospital. He said at the time that Miles was "a little bit under the weather" but said they believed he'd be fine.
Miles returned to the facility some time after 2 p.m. WBRZ caught a brief video interview with him as he was entering the facility. Miles joked that he overdosed on coffee but would "absolutely" be at practice.
"People decided to take precaution, ordered me to go check up with the medical community, so I did," Miles told WBRZ. "No issues. Feel good."
Miles was in attendance for all of Monday's practice.
He reiterated during a press conference afterward that coffee was behind his minor health scare.
“Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated," he said.
Miles explained that he cut coffee out of his diet for about six months, but recently started working it back into his diet. He joked that he "doesn't get along" him and started suffering the adverse effects in front of LSU head trainer Jack Marucci. He encouraged Miles to go to the hospital to have it checked out.
Miles would not say definitively whether he drove himself to the hospital.
“I did participate in a drive," he said. "I was responsible for the car.”
LSU players said they started to learn the news when it broke on social media. Word began to circulate amongst the team, then LSU lineman Josh Boutte said the players got a text around 2 p.m. that said Miles was OK and would be back for practice.
"You worry at first, but when you hear from everybody that he's fine, that's definitely a relief," said LSU senior Vadal Alexander. "If it was anything serious, he would not be at practice, so that's good to hear."
Miles had a health scare back in 2001 after his first season with Oklahoma State. Doctors found a cyst on his brain, and Miles had to undergo surgery to remove it. He was back to his full coaching duties soon about a week later.
This incident does not appear to have any connection to that though.
Monday's Miles news comes three days after offensive coordinator Cam Cameron announced that he had been diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer.
