Kansas football coach Les Miles will be returning to Louisiana this week, as he will be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in Natchitoches.

Miles isn’t the only big name that’s being honored. Former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, who was born in New Orleans, also will be one of the 11 inductees.

The dinner and ceremony will take place on Saturday night at the Natchitoches Events Center.

Miles, who was hired by KU last November, went 114-34 in 12 years as LSU’s coach from 2005-16. He also won a national championship in the 2007-08 season.
