Riley agrees to extension with Oklahoma

There are currently eight head coaching positions open in the NFL, and Lincoln Riley’s name has been mentioned as a possible candidate for nearly all of them.

However, that talk can be put to rest. For now, at least.

Riley has agreed to extend his contract and increase his salary. The contract terms are still being finalized and will be subject to approval by the OU Board of Regents, which will meet later this month.

“Lincoln is the right representative for our university in such a high-profile position,” says OU President James Gallogly through a released statement, “I am proud to work with him and anxious to support him as he takes our program into the future.”

In two seasons under Riley, the Sooners have gone 24-4, won two Big 12 championships and have made back-to-back appearances in the 4-team College Football Playoff.

Through a release from the school, Riley says, “My family and I are very appreciative of the support the University of Oklahoma has shown. We’re thankful for the relationships we have with President Gallogly, Joe Castiglione, the OU Board of Regents and the entire Norman community. This has been a great home for us. We’ve had a great start and we’re excited for many more great years in the future.”
