10 Coaching Candidates to Replace Mike Riley at Oregon State

Mike Riley departed Oregon State for Nebraska on Thursday, leaving the Beavers looking for a new head coach for the first time since the end of the 2002 season. Oregon State is one of the toughest jobs in the Pac-12, so finding a coach that can win at a high level won’t be easy for athletic director Bob De Carolis.

What is Mike Riley's Outlook at Nebraska in 2015

Mike Riley has had many opportunities to move during his second stint as Oregon State’s coach. USC took a look at their former coordinator. So did Alabama, where Riley played for Bear Bryant.

After 11 seasons since his return to Corvallis, Riley made the move to Nebraska to replace Bo Pelini.

So what kind of program is awaiting Riley in Lincoln, and what are the prospects for his early tenure?

Here’s a look:

Will the Falcons win two in a row in Detroit?
MAC Championship Preview and Prediction: Bowling Green vs. Northern Illinois

Bowling Green and Northern Illinois meet for the second consecutive year in Detroit for the MAC Championship Game. The stakes are a little lower in this season’s matchup, as the Huskies entered last year's game undefeated and had a chance at a marquee bowl. However, the Falcons used a huge performance from quarterback Matt Johnson to end Northern Illinois’ unbeaten season.

What is Jim McElwain's Outlook at Florida in 2015?

From the roster to recruiting to the scheme, this is the situation McElwain is walking into
What is Jim McElwain's Outlook at Florida in 2015?

Florida didn’t have a ton of time in the spotlight with its hire of Colorado State coach Jim McElwain as Nebraska announced a hire of Mike Riley just as McElwain was becoming official.

After a few weeks, that won’t matter. Winning the day or winning the press conference isn’t nearly as important as winning over fans in that first season.

Winning early, though, will be tough. After all, Florida wouldn’t have made a coaching change if this program were running at full strength.

Ranking the Jobs in the 2014-15 College Football Coaching Carousel

Change is a constant in college football, particularly in the coaching profession.

In decades past, a coach could ascend to the top jobs — and some of the mid-level posts — in the sport and stay year after year. Think of Bear Bryant, Vince Dooley, Bo Schembechler or Hayden Fry.

Those days are more or less over. In the last four seasons alone, Texas, USC, Oregon, Auburn and Tennessee have hired new coaches. Penn State has hired two. Florida is on its second coaching search in the last five seasons.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Chicago Bears Preview and Prediction

DeMarco Murray and the Cowboys need to bounce back on the road tonight against the Bears to stay in the thick of the NFC playoff chase
Dallas Cowboys vs. Chicago Bears Preview and Prediction

A Chicago Bears team that harbored Super Bowl dreams when the season began limps into tonight’s matchup on the NFL Network with a Dallas Cowboys team that still has postseason aspirations but is smarting from a Thanksgiving flameout. The Bears (5-7) have won three straight against the Cowboys (8-4) and two straight at home, but those are empty numbers in what is shaping up to be a lost season in the Windy City. 

 

Big Ten Championship Preview and Prediction: Ohio State vs. Wisconsin

Buckeyes regroup around Cardale Jones to continue playoff bid
Big Ten Championship Preview and Prediction: Ohio State vs. Wisconsin

When Ohio State clinched the Big Ten East weeks ago, the Buckeyes probably thought they’d spend a week worrying about how to stop Melvin Gordon or whichever running back the Big Ten West sent to Indianapolis.

 

If only this week were that easy.

 

Instead, Ohio State is dealing with a range of emotional and personnel obstacles ranging from tragedy to misfortune.
