  • Mike Riley is Headed Back to Oregon State

The former two-time coach of the Beavers is back, this time as an assistant head coach to Jonathan Smith.

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.

Mike Riley just can't quit Oregon State.

"Current and former players thriving in the National Football League and in life are proof of Coach Riley's tremendous ability to recruit outstanding young men", Smith said in an Oregon State statement.

The former Nebraska coach was named the Beavers' assistant head coach Thursday. After leaving Oregon State, Riley was then called on to be the Nebraska head coach in 2014, and was sacked after this this past regular season. 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. "He understands what it takes to win in this conference, and how to evaluate student-athletes".

Also returning to Oregon State is Dan Van De Riet, who will be the Beavers' chief of staff/director of football operations.

Head coach Jonathan Smith was appointed last month and is busy putting together his staff.

Riley is a hometown kid and considers Corvallis to be his home. He was the team's head coach from 1997-98 before leaving to coach the San Diego Chargers for three seasons. At 93-80, he's Oregon State's all-time winningest coach.

According to The Oregonian newspaper, Trent Bray is expected to join Oregon State's staff, though his duties are unclear.

Riley's hire at Oregon State means his buyout from Nebraska will be mitigated, but not likely by much.

Per terms of his Nebraska contract, which runs through February of 2021, Riley could have been owed more than $6.6 million in compensation.
