    Could Riley be Lured away from OU?

    So assuming LR has a big year in 2017, he's obviously going to get a lot of attention being as young as he is. The SEC is going to have some coaching vacancies this year and teams like Bama, FL, ND etc will within the next couple of years. If a school like A&M or ND or even NFL teams offered LR 6+ mil does he stay or go? I'd like to think he would stay but most coaches don't have the commitment to their school Bob did.

    This is a question that needs to be directed at OU48. He will have your answer.

    Could he? Yes. Will he? I guess we'll see, but I get the feeling Lincoln has a LOT of Bob in him at this point. He also talks to Leach who knows what he has at OU.

    I think he'll stay, and that's just one of the reasons Joe Castiglione was so high on hiring him immediately. I'd be re-writing that contract of Lincoln's right now if I were Boren and Castiglione, though. I do think that if we're going to worry, OUr main concern should be the NFL, not other NCAAF teams.

    Really? The guy's had the job for 3 months. You don't think he realizes what he has here and how fortunate he is? At Oklahoma he's also closer to his family in west Texas. Of all the things I'm concerned with as it relates to OU, the very bottom of the list is whether Lincoln Riley will leave after this season.

    Yes because OU has never been known as anything more than a stepping stone job to get you where you really want to go.

    Not sure he would translate into a good NFL coach. Not sure he would want to. If you are successful at OU, the world is your oyster. There are jobs comparable to OU but not a clear cut BETTER job in the country. If it's a money issue, we can take care of that. If it's a facilities issue, we have some of the best. If it's a commitment by "management" to the program, I think we have demonstrated that. Why else would he leave??

    Your attempt at logic is pathetic.

    Not a chance. He'll consistently be paid in top 5 coaches in the nation at OU. With some success he could almost have this job for life. He is from Texas and has a great understanding of recruiting grounds and relationships with high school coaches. But, yeah. Here we go again. For some ridiculous reason people thought Stoops could be lured year after year.

    I agree. I'd also like to echo what Indy had to say about him having a LOT of Bob in him, and that's why Bob was so confident that Lincoln would be his replacement. I think he's a college coach, and why ever leave OU unless you're Catholic and want to be the HC at ND? There are a max of six teams that have OU's pedigree. This is a great program to call home.

    1 to my knowledge; Jim Tatum to Maryland. His successor turned out to be pretty decent.

    My take is this..... Lincoln and his wife are small town type of people (with a degree of sophistication) as are a very sizable percentage of the OU fan base. The Riley's can relate to us well.

    I grew up in a small town too. Norman has every amenity located nearby that’s needed for this mind set..

    Mrs. Riley has indicated that she was extremely happy to have grown up in a small town. She would likely want her kids growing up “in a place like this”. She once indicated she was very happy to relocate back to this part of the nation…. As long as things are going well and with their young children I could see the Riley's wanting to stay in Norman for a very, very long time. I can’t see Lincoln wanting anyother college job…..

    20 years from now when he may be ready for a new challenge and when Jerry Jones is gone and if the Dallas Cowboys coming calling then he might be interested in a job like that.
    JMHO.

    PS: I don’t like it when threads like this are started …. Let’s enjoy the journey and help Riley and the program along the way when and where we can.

    At that point in time, Maryland was probably a better job.

    cannot read quoted remark, on ignore. I'll just look at the pictures.

    If he wins a bunch of national titles over the next 15 years or so, maybe he decides to take a swing at the NFL. That's about the only way I see him being "lured away."

    This wasn't a negative thread you ****ing retard. It's a valid scenario to consider when you have one of the hottest young coaches in the nation who has the possibility of having a monster first year. LR is THE type of guy NFL teams look for it's a reasonable concern so stfu.

    Could Riley be Lured away from OU?

    Why do folks think an NFL job is better than the top tier college jobs? Money is the same and less job security in the NFL IMHO. Built in parity in the NFL guarantees down years and firings. OU could be a perennial top 20 team for the next 25 years.

    Lincoln Riley is 34 and the head coach of the 1st or 2nd most successful program since WWII and Bob Stoops handed him a situation by leaving on top that sets up Riley for a tremendous start and run. Where are the better jobs?

    this "kid" was handed the keys to the freaking castle, by a mentor (Bob) he truly likes and respects. He was humbled that this incredible HC'g opportunity fell his way. I would assume that he will be eternally grateful to Bob, Joe, Boren for what is a nearly unprecedented baton exchange. He KNOWS he didn't have to go "pay his dues" at some shitty, no hope program as a HC. He didn't have to move his family 2 or 3 times (like most HC's of elite programs have had to do) to get this gig. How could someone in his shoes even CONSIDER leaving a program and people that handed this to you on a silver platter? I mean, yeah...I guess anything is possible.....but unless Mike Stoops starts bird-dogging Lincoln's wife.....I see no reasonable or even slightly likely scenario that pulls him out of Norman. I'll start to worry about this in like....MAYBE....15 years.

    Assuming he doesn't crumble and start blowing games he shouldn't, OU would match any offer out there. Proved that with Stoops. Why else do you think he got a new raise and 5-year extension every other year?

    the LAST reason we would lose him.....would be the $$$$. This kid is sitting on an absolute gold mine. This win just elevated him to levels of pay that only the top top coaches can demand. Throw in the fact that he'll (very near future) be cashing these checks at the age of 34 means that he'll be potentially able to amass more wealth than ANY HC, past OR present .
