LSU coach Les Miles is heading back to Bristol, Conn., Tuesday for a full day of interviews in the ESPN “car wash” (that’s what the ESPN folks call it when they run guests through a battery of appearances on their various media platforms).
Here is his schedule (as supplied by LSU). All times are Central and of course some could possibly change at the last moment:
10:10 a.m. – First Take (live on ESPN with Chris Fowler and Erin Andrews)

This will be Miles’ second trip to spend a day at ESPN this summer. He and quarterback Jordan Jefferson went there in June.
All 12 SEC football coaches are doing the ESPN thing this week, six on Monday and six on Tuesday. Miles said last week that he couldn’t imagine what more the ESPN folks had to ask him about after his first appearance, though you’d have to believe the names “Russell Shepard” and “Willie Lyles” will come up once or twice.
Miles added this is an SEC-mandated appearance for all the coaches. Good thing, because certainly SEC football needs all the publicity it can get.
Also in Bristol on Tuesday will be Nick Saban (Alabama), Bobby Petrino (Arkansas), Mark Richt (Georgia), Joker Phillips (Kentucky) and James Franklin (Vanderbilt).
