Riley was with Klieman at North Dakota State before the staff moved to K-State. Riley is a 1998 graduate of Creighton Prep where he played on three very good teams that were one win away from the state championship game three times. He also played college football at UNO where he was an All-American. Riley started his coaching career at UNO.
