We have our first unconfirmed report on Lincoln Riley’s USC contract, and it’s pretty wild if true.
On Sunday, USC announced that he had snagged Riley away from the Oklahoma Sooners in a move that shook the college football world.
We got our guy.

According to Internet rumors, Riley is not only getting paid over $100 million to coach at USC, but he’s also getting several perks from the school.
These numbers are pure speculation considering USC has not officially released their contract terms with Riley, but the rumored contract has garnered plenty of reactions from the college football community.
That’s full scholarship w/ room & board if there ever was. Man makes $110M and will never make a mortgage payment or pay for travel again. He wasn’t afraid of the SEC. He’s got the best coaching deal in NCAA history. Who could turn that down? https://t.co/bBLOy9feHI

Every coach in America hopes these numbers are true.
