Bud Riley dies at age 86

Another sad story to report this morning. Bud Riley, the father of Oregon State coach Mike Riley died on Saturday at age 86 near his home in British Columbia.

Bud Riley was the OSU defensive coordinator and secondary coach from 1965-1972 under Dee Andros and again in 1979 under Craig Fertig in 1979.

Riley left Oregon State in 1972 to coach in the Canadian Football League, serving as head coach for Toronto, Winnipeg, Hamilton and Calgary.

The World War II veteran is survived by his wife, Mary, of more than 60 years; sons Mike, Ed and Pete. Bud’s brother Hayden, a former head baseball and basketball coach at the University of Alabama, passed away in 1995.

Mike Riley will be at the team's practice today.
