Ex-Cowboys Greats comment on Les Miles

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, former quarterback Troy Aikman and ex Dallas and LSU tight end David LaFleur comment on Miles as a coach.

David LaFleur, former LSU and Dallas Cowboys Tight End

"He's the best coach I've ever played for.  He's an excellent choice for LSU.  He's a great individual, both on and off the field.  He's great with the players, and away from the field he makes sure everything is done the correct way.  I can't say enough about the guy.  He brought a lot of enthusiasm into the game, and he's just a joy to be around. 

"He made Oklahoma State a top 25 program and did a great job of recruiting while playing second fiddle to Oklahoma in that state.  He did some outstanding things there, and I look for him to come here and carry on the success LSU has had the last few years.  LSU is the only show in the state and I think he should do very, very well."

Jerry Jones, Owner, Dallas Cowboys 

"On the football field, Les Miles is a proven winner who knows how to teach the game and produce results.  He also has the unique qualities necessary to lead young men and make a difference in their lives.

"I believe, however, that Les' greatest asset is his integrity and the very high level of character that he exudes naturally.  Some people talk about sincerity and doing things the right way.  Les Miles defines that standard on a daily basis." 

Troy Aikman, former quarterback, Dallas Cowboys

"I always had a great deal of respect for Les when he was coaching here in Dallas.  What he accomplished at Oklahoma State in the short time that he was in Stillwater speaks for itself.  Not only is Les an outstanding football coach, he is also someone who will represent LSU with class and integrity.  Knowing that the head coach often serves as the face of the university, I can't imagine LSU having a better person to be in that role than Les Miles."
