Les Miles says he didn't fight for his job when LSU fired him, but he doesn't think he is ready to be done with coaching.

The 62-year-old Miles spoke to "The Dan Patrick Show" on Monday, a day after being let go by LSU. The Tigers fell to 2-2 after a last-second loss at Auburn on Saturday.

Miles says he was informed face-to-face of the decision by LSU athletic director Joe Alleva. He says, "I accepted that outcome and I will support this decision and these Tigers as we go forward."
