In June, then-33-year-old Lincoln Riley succeeded Bob Stoops at Oklahoma and thus, became the youngest head coach throughout the FBS ranks.
That title may soon belong to someone close to Riley.
Riley’s younger brother, Garrett, is currently a quarterbacks coach at Kansas on the heels of his first full season as an on-field assistant. Now, the 28-year-old Riley is reportedly a candidate to fill Kent State’s desire for a new coach, according to a report from FootballScoop.com.
“Within the last week, Nielsen interviewed Garrett Riley, the younger brother of Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley. Riley graduated from college in 2012 and recently completed his first season as an on-the-field FBS coach, working as Kansas’s quarterbacks coach. Although we understand Nielsen is interviewing another lower level head coach today, sources tell us Riley remains a candidate for the job.”
This story will be updated.
