The Nebraska Cornhuskers are looking for a new head football coach. University Athletic Director Bill Moos announced this morning that Mike Riley is no longer the coach of the team. In a statement, Moos said Riley brought "professionalism and energy" to the program, "but those attributes have not translated to on-field success."
The decision comes after Nebraska ended their season yesterday with a loss at home to the Iowa Hawkeyes 56-to-14. The team finished the season with a four-and-eight overall record and three-and-six in the Big Ten Conference. That marks the teams fewest wins total since 1961.
Over Riley's three seasons at Nebraska, he finished with an even 19-and-19 record.
Linebackers coach Trent Bray has been named interim head coach.
Nebraska alumnus and current UCF coach Scott Frost could be Riley's successor.
