LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska coach Mike Riley has been given a one-year contract extension through the 2020 season.
Riley originally signed a five-year contract when he was hired in December 2014. He signed the extension last month and is now on a four-year contract.
No salary for the fourth year was listed in paperwork the university provided to The Associated Press on Tuesday. Riley's base salary is $2.9 million this year, $3 million in 2018 and $3.1 million in 2019.
