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.''

Miles added that he is not ready to retire, saying ''I would have a difficult time not being involved in the game and not being a coach.''

In 12-plus-seasons at LSU, Miles won 114 games and a national championship.
