Oregon St. Coach Riley made the Forbes list of "College Football's Greediest Coaches In 2011" coming in at number nine.
Now I know this is looking at one season's results, and I personally would argue that is a bit unfair overall, but it does make for provocative sports journalism! I also think this is interesting in light of the criticism about Coach Riley from the last couple seasons from many here and within the fan base.
But to make me take it a bit more with a grain of salt, former Penn Coach Joe Paterno made this year's "Most Efficient College Football Coaches" coming in at number 9! They did provide a "note" about him being replaced this season. And it cracks me up that one side is "efficient" and the other side "greedy" but hey it is Forbes and the bottom line you know!
A nice piece about Riley.
"Do not be fooled or misled by Mike Riley’s outwardly placid, Pacific Northwest-mellow, uncomplicated attitude. Oregon State’s veteran football coach is ultra-competitive, motivated by what he calls a 'fear of sliding backwards.'"
Here is where you can access audio, video, GameTracker, and other stuff about the UNLV game online. I don't know right now if you have to pay for the audio and video access, but a nice resource page overall for the game.
