Mike Riley is out as head coach of the Husker football team.

Athletic Director Bill Moos issued a statement saying "Riley has brought professionalism and energy to the Nebraska football program, but unfortunately, those attributes have not translated to on-field success."

Moos has called a news conference at 1 p.m. to discuss his decision.

After 3 seasons under Riley, the Huskers went 19-19, including 4-8 this year.
