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

Mike Riley is headed back to the Oregon State football staff. The Beavers made it official Thursday.

Riley spent the past three seasons at Nebraska, going 19-19 over his tenure. He was sacked from that post at the close of this current regular-season campaign after posting an uninspiring 19-19 record (12-14 in conference) with the Huskers. Riley coached Oregon State from 1997-98 before taking the San Diego Chargers coaching job, only to return from 2003-14. I'm excited to surround our players with outstanding men! "He understands what it takes to win in this conference, and how to evaluate student-athletes".

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

Police said an officer deployed a less-than-lethal bean bag shotgun, striking Pigeon in the left hip. Authorities determined that the use of deadly force by Sweeney against Pigeon was not justified.

During his time at OSU, Riley coached current National Football League quarterbacks Derek Anderson (Carolina Panthers) and Matt Moore (Miami Dolphins), All-American wide receiver Brandin Cooks (New England Patriots) and former All-Pro running back Steven Jackson.

Also returning to Oregon State is Dan Van De Riet, who will be the Beavers' chief of staff/director of football operations. He was replaced by Scott Frost, quarterback at Nebraska who spent the past two seasons as head coach at Central Florida.

Riley's hire at Oregon State means his buyout from Nebraska will be mitigated, but unlikely by much. Riley was due $6.63 million from December 1 through the remaining 39 months of his contract at Nebraska, a monthly cut of $170,000.
