Former Nebraska and Oregon State head coach Mike Riley joined the College Football Playoff selection committee on Friday.

Riley, who was appointed to a three-year term, replaces Washington athletic director Pat Chun on the 13-member committee.

“We are pleased to have Mike join the committee,” CFP executive director Bill Hancock said in a statement Friday. “He has significant experience as a player and coach, and he loves college football. He will bring a unique perspective to the committee. Plus, he is a delightful human being.”

Riley, 70, compiled a record of 112-99 with Oregon State (1997-98, 2003-14) and Nebraska (2015-17). He guided the Beavers to eight bowl games (6-2 record) and the Cornhuskers to two (1-1).

Riley went 14-34 as head coach of the NFL’s San Diego Chargers from 1999-2001 and has also served as a head coach in the Canadian Football League, World League of American Football, Alliance of American Football and USFL.
