For anyone wondering where Les Miles' head is at before his return to LSU and Tiger Stadium Saturday, it's safe to say he's pretty excited to be back. 

In an interview with WBRZ Friday, Miles said he's honored to be returning to the school as part of a celebration of the 2007 national championship team, citing how the weekend "really puts an emphasis on team." 

He also recounted the more memorable aspects of the job he loved, including the players he coached, the coaches who put in the long hours to game plan with him and, "the 100,000 (fans) that fill that stadium and know without a shadow of a doubt that LSU is going to kick somebody's ass." 

Miles was fired from his job as LSU's head coach last year after 12 seasons, but he's yet to make a negative comment about the situation. Along with the above mentioned reasons, he told WBRZ the kindness the people of Louisiana have shown him and his family, as well as his own choice to "be loyal," has played a role in that decision. 

"I could not have asked for anything more or anything better," Miles said. "It fit me to a T. I loved it. I loved being here."
