Mike Riley is the head coach of the Oregon State University Beavers football program, returning to the job after a stint in the NFL as the head coach of the San Diego Chargers. Riley was 14-34 in three seasons as head coach. His last game was indiciative of his last season, as the Chargers played well, but one poor play turned the tide. The 2001 Chargers ended their season in Week 16, with a loss to the Seattle Seahawks, after Doug Flutie passed for 377 yards and drove for the tying field goal with 16 seconds remaining, but poor special teams allowed a kick to be returned 64 yards to set up a 54-yard field goal.

Riley considers the college town of Corvallis, Oregon his hometown. Riley grew up watching the Beavers while his father, Bud Riley served as defensive coordinator under legendary coach Dee Andros from 1965-1972. Riley was a hometown hero himself, as he was the starting quarterback who led the Corvallis High School Spartans to the state football title in 1970.
