7. Les Miles
Miles has averaged about 9.5 wins per season at LSU and does have a couple title game appearances and one national championship (2007). Based on that, he’s top three or four, but I knocked him down a bit because of his age (61) and the fact that the Tigers struggled a bit more than normal in 2014 (8-5). Still, The Hatter doesn’t get enough respect nationally and would be a solid choice to build a program for several years before turning it over to somebody else. He’s a proven winner, recruiter and has loads of big-game experience.
