Mike Riley hired as Oregon State assistant coach

For the third time in his coaching career, the former Nebraska head football coach will be at Oregon State, this time as an assistant coach under his former quarterback, Jonathan Smith.

Smith also formally announced three other on-field additions to his staff: former Colorado co-offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren (offensive coordinator), former Arizona offensive line coach Jim Michalczik (run game coordinator) and Jake Cookus, who will be the special teams coordinator after spending the past two seasons as an OSU quality control coach.

Mike Riley's exit as the head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers was seemingly a long time coming and it finally became official in late November.

In his 14 seasons as Oregon State's head coach, Riley led the program to a 93-80 record and eight bowl appearances. His last tenure ended when he left OSU to take the head coaching job at Nebraska, where he went 19-19 in three seasons.

Eugenie Bouchard Met Up With Her Super Bowl Date Again
Earlier this year Bouchard indicated she was going out with National Hockey League star Jordan Carron. Bouchard was right to feel cocky as the Falcons were leading by 25 points at the time.

Mike Riley is returning to Oregon State.

Riley isn't the only former Husker staff member heading back to Corvallis. He'll have a to-be-determined position assignment.

Riley, most recently head coach at Nebraska, was coach at Oregon State twice, from 1997-98 and 2003-14. OSU has allocated a salary pool of $3.3 million annually for assistant coaches. Former head coach Gary Andersen resigned Oct 9 midway through his first season, and Cory Hall was promoted to interim coach for the remainder of the 2017 season.
