Riley agrees to a new Oregon State contract

It appears that Oregon State coach Mike Riley has taken himself out of the hunt to be USC's next coach.

Riley and the school agreed to a three-year contract extension that runs through the 2019 season.

“Due to the fact there is a lot of speculation on my future, I want to make it known that I’m very excited to be coaching at Oregon State University and I anticipate doing so for a long time,” Riley said in a statement from the American Football Coaches Association convention in Orlando, Fla.
