Like the Saints did last week, LSU's head football coach Les Miles visited the Louisiana coast and fishing communities hurt by the oil spill during the last few months.

Coach Miles was given the invitation by Governor Bobby Jindal himself. The pair toured Pelican and Scofield islands in Plaquemines Parish.

"The reason that I'm here is to say 'thanks' to and support Governor Jindal and to show my support of this effort," Miles said. "There is a lot of important work being done and it's going to take time and vision. For the people that fish in this community and for the people that work in the petroleum industry, this is important work and I thank you for allowing me to be a part and we support you."

Jindal also noted that as of Friday afternoon, between 14-15 million pounds of sand have been used to fill gaps on the islands and that many of the men and women helping to save the Louisiana coast are LSU students.
