But make no mistake, he is nowhere near the coach as Nick Saban. . Who would you want as your father? Les Miles Who would you want to council your kids? Les Miles Who would you want as a brother? Les Miles Who would you want as your college coach? Nick Saban. This isn't about being a good guy. Nick Saban is a an arrogant little dictator. I'm not a fan but there is no denying that he is the best coach in college football. Les is a terrific recruiter but Saban is better. Les is good at coaching but Saban coaches them to another level. Les is tolerant of ineffectiveness. Saban is intolerant of anything but perfection.
