Nebraska's Riley is business as usual amid coaching rumors

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Mike Riley's demeanor offers no hint he could be coaching his last game for Nebraska when it plays Iowa on Friday.

Long known as the "nicest guy in college football," Riley showed up at his news conference Monday in a red top and gray athletic pants and, as he does each week, thanked everybody for coming. Then, same as always, he spent a few minutes running down the injury list, reviewing the last game and offering a brief preview of the next.

Nebraska (4-7, 3-5 Big Ten) has lost 11 of its last 17, and full-throated calls for Riley's ouster have been coming from the fan base since Northern Illinois stunned the Cornhuskers in Lincoln in mid-September. Shawn Eichorst, who hired Riley three years ago and quietly extended his contract before the season, was fired as athletic director five days after that game.
