LSU’s Les Miles ‘so glad’ for current Saints CB Delvin Breaux

While current New Orleans Saints cornerback Delvin Breaux may have never played a down for the LSU Tigers due to a neck injury, it doesn’t mean that his former coach isn’t ecstatic for his career success.

As Jim Kleinpeter of NOLA.com reported, LSU head coach Les Miles simply raved about the CB.

"How wonderful," Miles said to NOLA.com, in a mini-outburst when asked about the former Tiger.

"I’m so glad for him I can’t tell you," Miles continued. "I just want him to be everything he wants to be. He’s a quality person.

"We were so disappointed we didn’t have him the years he couldn’t play for us. He was going to school on our campus. He couldn’t play. He went by way of the Canadian League and back. I’m so glad he’s strong and healthy and capable."

Breaux has had a pretty impressive journey to where he is today, and currently he’s slated to be the No. 2 cornerback for the Saints after Keenan Lewis’ unfortunate injury. Even with his teammate’s injury, Breaux had already made a strong impression on coaches and was expected to play an immediate role with his new team in 2015.
