Les Miles Wasn’t A Great Coach, But He Was A Great Recruiter
FiveThirtyEight
 

Welcome to the latest episode of Hot Takedown, FiveThirtyEight’s sports podcast. On this week’s show (Sept. 27, 2016) we talk about tragic death of Miami Marlins pitcher José Fernández and how both the numbers and his background show why he was so great. Then, we chat with Sports Illustrated’s Lindsay Schnell about why LSU fired Les Miles and whether he should give up being a coach and concentrate on being a recruiter. Finally, we break down the numbers behind Kevin Garnett’s historic career. Plus, a significant digit on Vin Scully’s retirement after almost seven decades in the commentator’s chair
