Lincoln Riley appointed to USC: Former Oklahoma Sooners coach releases statement on his new job

Riley advances into an interesting position by accepting the job as head coach of France Troy. If he had stuck with the Oklahoma Sooners, he would eventually have to face teams like the Alabama Crimson Tide, Georgia Bulldogs and LSU Tigers.

That’s not even to mention annoying opponents like the Ole Miss Rebels, Kentucky Wildcats, Arkansas Razorbacks, and Mississippi State Bulldogs.

The Pac-12 is a tough conference for various reasons, but Riley should be able to step in and win right away. The overall level of competition in his new conference should lead to plenty of wins and more opportunities in the College Football Extension. This may not necessarily be the case with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Regardless, the Sooners are now looking for a new head coach. They will pick up the pieces and advance. Soon, they will end up with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Maybe they’ll even have a head coach who can win the college football game.
