LSU's Les Miles Called A Communications Director 'Bae' During The SEC Teleconference

Les Miles is coming for you, Kliff Kingsbury. 

College football's hippest coach, with his designer sunglasses, suave dance moves and GQ haircut, apparently has some competition in the cool department from the LSU coach. 

Today is the SEC coaches teleconference. Miles was first up, and he began his appearance by calling Chuck Dunlap, the communications director and primary contact for SEC Football, "bae."

For those unfamiliar with the word,"bae," Time magazine defines it as "a term of endearment, often referring to your boyfriend or girlfriend."

Dunlap certainly is not Miles' boyfriend, but perhaps the LSU coach does think kindly of the communications director. It appears that Miles uses the word often, though.
