Nebraska football coach Mike Riley’s contract has been extended by one year through the 2020 season, and NU President Hank Bounds told The World-Herald on Monday evening “I believe we’ll do that again in December.” “I have great confidence in Mike, to extend his contract to four years,” Bounds said. “I expect us to compete, and I have every confidence that we’ll extend it again in December.” According to Bounds, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Ronnie Green requested a one-year extension for Riley “earlier in the year,” which Bounds approved. Was a raise involved? “I’m almost certain his salary remained the same,” Bounds said. Riley’s pay for the 2017-18 fiscal year is $2.9 million. In August, Bounds said, Green requested another one-year extension for Riley and a one-year extension for Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst, whose deal runs through June 2019, according to a chancellor’s document provided by NU. Bounds said he told Green on those two requests “let’s visit that in December.” -Lee Barfknecht, World-Herald, Read More
