Mike Riley is Headed Back to Oregon State

Mike Riley just can't quit Oregon State.

Riley's appointment was announced Thursday by new coach Jonathan Smith, who played one season (1998) under Riley and later was a graduate assistant (2003) on Riley's staff.

Former Oregon State University head coach Mike Riley is returning as assistant coach.

During his career in Corvallis, Riley accumulated an overall record of 93-80.

By the end of the day Wednesday, fires had burned more than 95,000 acres , mostly in Ventura County, north of Los Angeles . Authorities say 12,000 structures in the region are threatened and more than 200,000 people are under evacuation orders.

Riley was sacked November 25 as head coach at Nebraska, after going 19-19 over three seasons with the Huskers. "I'm really excited about the opportunity to get this going again like we can".

In between his two Oregon State head-coaching stints, Riley spent three seasons with the NFL's San Diego Chargers, going 14-34 before being fired. Riley previously was the Oregon State head coach from 2003 to 2014, and also 1997 to '98. "He has an impressive resume of developing quarterbacks in this conference". I could coach quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, tight ends.

"Jim is one of the finest offensive tacticians in the game who has experienced high levels of success at the college and professional levels, including Oregon State", Smith said.

Riley, 64, told The World-Herald last week that he was packing up and returning to Corvallis to live, and said he would be open to an OSU position if it worked for Smith.
