Les Miles talks satellite camps, other topics

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU head coach Les Miles hosted a news conference to talk about satellite camps and other topics.

The camps have become a hot topic across the nation.

Miles said the first nine days of the camps will be in the state of Louisiana. The first camp will be held June 2 in Shreveport.

Miles added there will be a youth camp in Baton Rouge on the LSU campus June 5 and 6. He also said LSU is working with 10 other colleges in the state on the satellite camps.

Miles said he will be at all of the camps and nothing is more important to him and the university than Louisiana. He also stated they don't want to do anything that could be a violation of an NCAA rule.

For those who don't know, satellite camps allow college coaches to travel to work as guests at camps hosted by others. The NCAA prohibits coaches from hosting camps outside a 50-mile radius, but there are no restrictions on coaches who are guests at camps set up by other institutions.

However, the ACC and SEC prohibit its coaches from even being invited guests beyond the 50-mile radius.

Miles also talked briefly about SEC making changes to the replay rules and playing Wisconsin at Lambeau Field to open the season.
