Home Depot Coach Of The Year 2011: LSU's Les Miles Ahead Of The Rest

The Home Depot Coach of the Year Award will be presented to LSU head coach Les Miles as a part of The Home Depot College Football Awards Thursday evening on ESPN.

In his seventh season at LSU, Les Miles led the Tigers to a 13-0 record for the first time in school history.  The Tigers have amassed 41 conference wins since Miles' first season in 2005, which is more than any other SEC school. LSU's current 8-0 record in league play was recently capped with a decisive 42-10 victory over Georgia, clinching Miles second SEC Championship with the Tigers.

The Tigers are currently preparing to play the Alabama Crimson Tide for the National Championship on January 9, which would be Miles' second since arriving in LSU and the Tigers' third in the past decade.

SB Nation's 2011 college football awards stream will have the winners of each college football award, because it's a college football awards stream.
