Oregon State hiring ex-Nebraska coach Mike Riley as assistant coach

Oregon State hiring ex-Nebraska coach Mike Riley as 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.

New Beavers head coach Jonathan Smith, just recently hired away from Washington, announced his coaching staff on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

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

After moving on from Oregon State after the 2014 season, Riley went 19-19 (12-14 Big Ten) in three seasons as the coach of the Cornhuskers.

He then remained in the National Football League as the New Orleans Saints' associate head coach in 2002 before making a return trip to Oregon State from 2003-2014. Riley left Corvallis after a 12-year run following the 2014 season for Nebraska, where he went 19-19 over the past three seasons and was sacked November 25.

Riley compiled a 93-80 record while leading the program. "He understands what it takes to win in this conference, and how to evaluate and develop student-athletes".

Riley isn't the only former Husker staff member heading back to Corvallis.

Smith will earn $1.9 million annually for the next five years, according to an agreement he has signed with the University. He was sacked following the season and replaced by Scott Frost. He led the program to eight bowl games, a 10-win season in 2006 and will offer stability to a program that needs it.

Riley has twice been the coach of the Beavers and is considered to be the most successful coach in school history.
