College Football, Nebraska Cornhuskers

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska football coach Mike Riley has been given a one-year contract extension through the 2020 season.

Riley originally signed a five-year contract when he was hired in December 2014. He signed the extension last month and is now on a four-year contract.

No salary for the fourth year was listed in paperwork the university provided to The Associated Press on Tuesday. Riley's base salary is $2.9 million this year, $3 million in 2018 and $3.1 million in 2019.

Riley is 16-12 with the Cornhuskers, including 1-1 this season after a 42-35 loss at Oregon last week.

Athletic director Shawn Eichorst said the extension "is indicative of our great belief in [Riley's] leadership of our program and in our future with him at the helm."

The Omaha World-Herald first reported the extension.
