When Novak Djokovic celebrated his historic Wimbledon victory by eating grass on the court, people quickly noted that it was the same thing Kansas head coach Les Miles did when he was at LSU.
People spent hours waiting to hear what the former national championship coach had to say about it. Now, we finally have our answer.
According to Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic, Les Miles expressed his surprise and jokingly said that it’s good to “take a nibble” of grass every now and then.
“Did he really? I recommend that people who enjoy a relationship with green grass take a nibble every now and then.”
Miles famously ate grass during a big win over Alabama in 2010, and during several other games during his LSU tenure.

As for Miles, he’s taking over a Jayhawks team that hasn’t won more than three games in a year in nearly a decade. So unless he can turn things around quickly, he may not have many too many chances to eat the grass.
