Report: South Carolina Plans to Interview Lincoln Riley

South Carolina has expressed interest in Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley and plans to talk to Riley regarding the Gamecocks' head-coaching job, sources told ESPN.com.

Riley, 32, is in his first season at Oklahoma and also coaches quarterbacks. He would become the youngest head coach in the FBS ranks if he is hired. The Sooners are ranked third nationally in scoring offense (45.8 points per game) and just wrapped up the Big 12 championship this past weekend.

Riley is considered one of the brightest young offensive minds in the game and is a Mike Leach disciple. He was at Texas Tech for seven seasons under Leach and runs a version of the Air Raid offense. Before joining Bob Stoops at Oklahoma, Riley was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at East Carolina for five seasons. (ESPN)
