Mike Riley knows how to have fun.
The 2017 college football season is seemingly right around the corner, so having a day off is probably welcomed by players before the craziness truly begins. And, while a day off is nice, the Nebraska head coach went one step further.
You earned it.

The Nebraska football Twitter handle was jacked up about it, too, and posted a video of Riley’s surprise for the team.

Nebraska players took to Twitter with the news, of course, as did a marketing coordinator for Adidas – Zach Soskin.

Hey recruits, is the coach at your top school for the culture? 🤔🤔🤔

Recruits look at everything when it comes down to picking which school to attend. Coaches, geographic location and uniforms are just some of the things that catch people’s eyes.
Little perks like seeing Kendrick Lamar don’t hurt, either.
