Riley has coached Heisman Trophy winning quarterbacks and made the College Football Playoffs in back-to-back years.
Although the details of the new deal weren’t released, the 35-year-old is said to be receiving a significant pay raise.
Now all he needs to do is figure out how to get over the hump and make it out of the first round of the playoffs.
