OU Regents Approve Riley's Contract

Lincoln Riley has been on the road recruiting since being hired as Oklahoma's new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach earlier this month.

The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents made it all official during their Wednesday meeting, approving a two-year contract that will pay Riley $500,000 annually.

Riley's contract also includes a $50,000 bonus for winning the College Football Playoff national championship. The deal runs through Jan. 31, 2017.

The 31-year-old Riley spent the last five years in the same position at East Carolina, where he was paid $275,000 a year.

Riley replaced former OU quarterback Josh Heupel, who received a raise to $605,000 annually and a contract extension through May 31, 2016 last summer. (The Oklahoman)
