Oklahoma Agrees With Lincoln Riley New 5-Year, $25M Contract

The Oklahoma Sooners have agreed to terms on a new 5-year deal with head coach Lincoln Riley, after the success of his first season at the helm.

The new deal is for 5-years and $25M, according to OUDaily.com’s Kegan Reneau.

Riley was previously scheduled to make $3.1 million plus incentives.

Riley led the Sooners to a 12-2 record and the second College Football Playoff appearance in school history. But the Sooners blew a 17-point lead to lose to Georgia in double-overtime in the Rose Bowl.
