On Riley, Football Scoop's Scott Roussel said: "Everywhere he's been his players love him, they ring up huge numbers and the coaches who work with him rave about him. Oh, and something to keep in mind: Chip Kelly and Helfrich were both offensive coordinators with no head coaching experience when they got the Oregon job." (Dallas Morning News)
