Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen on Les Miles firing: "I understand the pressure we're under in this league. We're [always] on the hot seat." You're judged on the last play you made and the last game you played. That's how it is in the SEC. "I don't think that's good for the game to have college coaches fired [during the season]. I don't think it's healthy of the program or the organization to do it at this time." Hurts stability for players and the program.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze on Les Miles firing: "When I heard the news, my stomach was sick. Les has been so genuinely kind to me and my family. I consider him a heck of a football coach and a better man. … He's the type of guy that every time you see him you see what you get. He's a genuine spirit that cares about people. That was difficult to see." Freeze's daughters are close with Miles as well. Freeze sat down and talked to them about Miles' firing.

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema on the firing of LSU's Les Miles: "I think in this world we all kind of bunker down. I have tremendous respect for Les." Bielema said he had a lot respect for Miles before he got to Arkansas and it was reinforced over the years. He had a lot of conversations with Miles but the best he had was about Miles' son and his college recruitment. "That was a pretty cool moment." Said Miles' demeanor, character and personality "just a class act." … "My guess is he won't be on the sideline very long and I'm sure he'll take advantage of it."
