Nebraska Football Coach Mike Riley Officially Fired

-

Nebraska football coach Mike Riley has been fired.

On Saturday morning, the Cornhuskers officially announced that the head coach has been relieved of his duties following a 56-14 shellacking courtesy of the Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday.

The Cornhuskers finished a disappointing regular season at 4-8.

“Mike Riley has brought tremendous professionalism and energy to the Nebraska football program, but unfortunately, those attributes have not translated to on-field success,” Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos said in a statement.

“After a thorough review of all aspects of our football program, I have chosen to move in a different direction.”

With Riley now out at Nebraska, expect the Cornhuskers to make a serious push for UCF head coach Scott Frost, who took the Knights from a winless program to undefeated in just two seasons.

Nebraska could have some competition for Frost with the Florida Gators expected to be in the mix, so we’ll have to see if this move was made to immediately jump into the Frost sweepstakes.
