Les Miles is the Coach Miles of LSU football. Tim Miles is the Coach Miles of Nebraska basketball.
Only one of them can have the coveted @CoachMiles Twitter handle. And that person is Tim Miles.
It led to some confusion on Twitter Tuesday afternoon during Les Miles' weekly media availabilty. The confusion likely happens regularly, but when some Les Miles quotes were being attributed to the @CoachMiles Twitter handle, Tim Miles needed to take some action.
@NOLATigers - I'm the basketball coach. In Nebraska. Please tweet at Les in Louisiana.— Tim Miles (@CoachMiles) September 2, 2014
@RonHigg @ - I'm the basketball coach. In Nebraska. Please tweet at Les in Louisiana.— Tim Miles (@CoachMiles) September 2, 2014
Les Miles has a modifier on his Twitter handle. It's @LSUCoachMiles. But we do have to wonder if the two have crossed paths before? This could be an epic Twitter-based conversation, assuming Les Miles knows about any of this confusion. Given the infrequency with which he tweets, he probably doesn't.
