Better known as the “Mad Hatter,” LSU football coach Les Miles had a totally different reason to go bonkers on Friday night.

He, along with the rest of his family, watched his son, sophomore Manny Miles, toss a no-hitter for University High School in Baton Rouge. The younger Miles actually threw his second no-hitter of the year in a 12-1 win over Cavalry Baptist.

The Mad Hatter was actually stuck at LSU during his son’s first no-hitter, and these tweets show just how special of a time this was for both members of the Miles family.

It was a great moment for both father and son, although this weekend is generally reserved for mothers.

Who would the Mad Hatter be if he didn’t include a funky tweet celebrating his significant other (and who would we be if we didn’t post it for you)?

We tease, but in reality, Miles couldn’t have said it any better: “Very family.”
