Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos said Tuesday morning that his evaluation of Husker football coach Mike Riley and his program could be concluded before the season ends. “I think it will be,” he affirmed in an interview with the Journal Star. Moos on Monday told ESPN that Riley “deserved” to finish the 2017 season as the Husker coach. The decision on whether he’ll retain that role beyond Nov. 24’s season finale, though, will likely be made before the Huskers and Iowa finish play at Memorial Stadium that afternoon. It wouldn’t be the first time Moos has made a coaching decision in-season. The book “The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football,” by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian, includes a recounting of Moos’ work at Washington State in 2011, when he fired Paul Wulff and hired Mike Leach. – PARKER GABRIEL, journalstar.comRead More
