Mike Riley is leaving the Oregon State football program, once again. Instead this time, he will be the new head coach of the San Antonion American Alliance football team.
Today, @Coach_Riley is officially taking his talents to San Antonio! With @DarylJohnston named as the team GM and all home games being played at the iconic @Alamodome, San Antonio finally gets it's well deserved professional football team. #AllianceSA #JoinTheAlliance pic.twitter.com/z0JCMmsTWC— AAF (@TheAAF) June 21, 2018

How it works: The league will consist of eight teams competing in a 10-week regular season through February-April, will play one game per week, and then a four-team post-season playoff. Riley will be joining other coaches including Steve Spurrier, Brad Childress, Rick Neuheisel, Dennis Erickson, among others. Michael Vick will also be the assistant coach to the Atlanta team.
Although Riley is off to San Antonio, he hopes to still be a part of the Beaver football program as well:
Interesting bit of news regarding Mike Riley becoming a HC of an AAF team in San Antonio: he’ll keep Corvallis as his home and he’s working on the possibility of continuing as an off-the-field analyst and consultant for Beavers.— Chantel Jennings (@ChantelJennings) June 21, 2018
