Les Miles is a great college football coach, an occasional eater of grass, and, apparently, a calming presence to one of nature’s most dangerous animals.
This morning, the LSU football coach paid a visit to Mike the Tiger, the official living bengal tiger mascot of Miles’ program.
Of course, the tiger swam right up to Miles when he saw him.

That is possibly one of the greatest photos we’ve ever seen featuring an SEC coach. It could likely only be topped by Nick Saban petting an elephant.
LSU opens the season Aug. 30 against Wisconsin in Houston.
