Report: OSU football coach denies interest in Wisconsin job

CORVALLIS, OR (KPTV) -

Oregon State University head football coach Mike Riley has been linked to a job at the University of Wisconsin, but he says it's not true.

Mike Riley told ESPN reporter Joe Schad he "has not interviewed, isn't scheduled to interview and has no interest in Wisconsin."

A CBSSports.com report had said Riley will be interviewing for the head coaching job at Wisconsin.

An OSU spokesman told Fox 12 that Riley is under contract through 2020, but he could not confirm nor deny reports of Riley interviewing at Wisconsin.

That school is looking for a new coach after Bret Bielema recently left to take over at Arkansas.

The Beavers stunned Wisconsin in Corvallis to open this season. The Beavers completed a remarkable turnaround in 2012, going 9-3 and earning a berth in the Alamo Bowl one year after finishing the season with a 3-9 record.
