According to Robert Hefner, his deal is worth $110 million, USC is buying his two houses in Norman for $1 million over asking price, he gets a $6 million house in Los Angeles and Riley gets 24/7 access to a private jet.

No matter how you slice it, Riley is getting straight paid, according to this report.dd

This is just an insane amount of money for Riley to join the Trojans. It’s an outrageous contract for a coach who has never won a national title.

Every single part of it is nuts. From the $110 million to the 24/7 access to a private jet, Riley has one of the most lucrative deals in all of American sports.

College football is truly a beast in its own league, and the amount of money we’ve seen thrown around to different coaches is proof of that fact.

If a team thinks you’re going to lead them to a national title, they’ll throw a bank vault at you to lead their squad.

Props to Riley for getting his money and a private jet to use whenever he wants. Life must be nice!
