CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State University Athletics confirmed the current assistant head coach/tight end coach, Mike Riley, will be named the head coach of a San Antonio franchise in the brand new Alliance of American Football League. 

Riley was brought back to OSU by his former player, and current football head coach, Jonathan Smith following his release from the University of Nebraska. This season would have been Riley's third stint with the Beavers. He served as head coach of the Beavers in 1997 before leaving to coach in the NFL. Then, he returned to Oregon State in 2003 before leaving to take the head coaching job in Nebraska in 2014.

“I want to thank Coach Riley for his contributions to our program and wish him the best in his new challenge,” Smith said. "There already is tremendous interest from coaches around the country to join our team. We will hire the right coach who will help us build on the significant momentum we have underway in recruiting and student-athlete development.”

Oregon State begins summer off-season workouts Monday, June 25, and returns to formal practice Friday, Aug. 3, in preparation for the upcoming season.

The first year of the Alliance of American Football League is set to begin in February, with the championship game scheduled for late April.
