There’s a good chance former Nebraska football coach Mike Riley ends up as a head coach again, but not in college football, at least for now.
A report by Alex Marvez of Sirius NFL Radio said that Riley will be the coach of the new San Antonio franchise coming to the Alliance of American Football.
Multiple sources have told me to expect @DarylJohnston to get named GM of the new Alliance of American Football franchise coming to San Antonio. Mike Riley is expected to get named head coach.

Riley was coach of the Cornhuskers from 2015-17, getting fired at the end of last season. He was 19-19 in the three seasons with the team, including a 4-8 finish last season.
Currently, Riley is serving as an assistant coach with Oregon State, where he formerly was the head coach from 1997-98 and then from 2003-14 before he went to Lincoln.
He also has experience as a coach in the NFL, heading the San Diego Chargers from 1999-2001. The coach has served in San Antonio as well, coaching the San Antonio Raiders of the WLAF from 1991-92.
