.@LincolnRiley on his decision to leave Oklahoma for USC:

“It was very sudden… You could feel their energy. You could feel the leadership at the very top was willing to do the things that maybe haven’t been done as of recent to get USC where it needs to be.”

— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) November 30, 2021

Cowherd noted how sudden it was when it was being reported that Riley was in play for the Trojans. The former Oklahoma coach said as much, and went into why he chose SC.

“It was very sudden,” Riley said. Explaining, “You could feel their energy. You could feel the leadership at the very top was willing to do the things that maybe haven’t been done as of recent to get USC where it needs to be.”

Lincoln also discussed how Southen Cal just felt like the right move for his family.

We got our guy.

Between the location, history of the program, and the recruiting opportunities, it’s hard to imagine Lincoln Riley not having tremendous success with the Trojans.

Over the years, Riley has recruited the state of California exceptionally well and his history as a developer of the QB position harkens back to the glory days of when USC was at the pinnacle of college football.
