Corn Flakes: Mike Riley Staff And The End Cometh Soon!

New, 29 comments
Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Riley had his introductory presser yesterday, introducing all of his staff except for the one that hasn't been filled - the receivers' assistant coach position. Impressions overall are favorable - Riley and his staff seem to know how to handle the media very well. This probably isn't too unlike any other coaching hire at the beginning, although you have to wonder if any other fan base would be as anal about each of the assistant coaching positions.

We learned that Ron Brown will not be retained, and really wasn't asked, either. This either has you apoplectic or excited depending upon whether you thought Brown was good/bad or loved/hated his personal world views. I don't care either way. Riley has a right to chose his staff as he will succeed or not with them at Nebraska, and this idea that other coaches can't be good role models for young men is, frankly, idiotic.

Ron Brown will be fine; as the cliche' goes when a door closes another one opens. Those who go through life in fear of losing their jobs because they fear what might happen next have a hard time understanding that concept, but trust me, opportunity doesn't only knock once. Opportunity knocks as many times as you're willing to listen and act.
