Head Coach, Alliance San Antonio
Mike Riley played college football for the University of Alabama under legendary head coach Paul “Bear” Bryant from 1971-1974 as a defensive back. Immediately following his playing days, Riley began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of California in 1975.
In 1977, Riley was hired as the defensive coordinator at Linfield College. His six-year tenure featured five conference titles and an undefeated NAIA Division II championship season in 1982.
Riley joined the Canadian Football League in 1983 as an assistant coach for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and was part of their 1984 Grey Cup championship team. In 1987, he became the second youngest head coach in CFL history at age 33, leading Winnipeg to two Grey Cup titles in three seasons.
Riley returned to the college ranks in 1993 as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at USC before being promoted to assistant head coach. After a successful three-year run, which included a Rose Bowl victory, Riley became head coach at Oregon State. During his two seasons with the Beavers, Riley laid the foundation for the success of the team in the years to come following his departure to the NFL.
In 1999, Riley became head coach of the San Diego Chargers, a position he held for three seasons. In 2002, Riley joined the New Orleans Saints as an assistant coach for one season before returning to Oregon State as head coach.
2003 marked the beginning of an 11-year run as head coach of Oregon State. During this span, Oregon State would tally a 6-2 bowl game record. Riley finished his tenure as Oregon
State head coach as the winningest coach in school history with 112 wins, including a victory over #1 ranked USC in 2008.
In 2014, Riley was named head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, a 3-year run that included trips to the Foster Farms Bowl and Music City Bowl. Riley returned to Oregon State as an assistant in 2017.
