Report: Wisconsin to interview Oregon State's Mike Riley for head coaching job

Oregon State head coach Mike Riley is set to interview for Wisconsin's open head-coaching position, CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler reported Thursday night.

Fowler also reported that Jacksonville Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker is under consideration:

The long-time Beavers coach is set to interview with Wisconsin this week, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the situation.

Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker is also a candidate. Iowa State's Paul Rhoads garnered interest early in the process but nothing materialized.

SI's Pete Thamel reported Thursday that Miami head coach Al Golden turned down overtures by Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez.

Riley is in the midst of his second stint as Oregon State's head coach — this one started in 2003. From 1999-2001, Riley coached the NFL's San Diego Chargers. He has an 81-66 career record with the Beavers, including a 9-3 finish this season and an Alamo Bowl berth.

According to his official Oregon State biography, Riley is under contract through 2019. His contract "rolls over" one year every time the Beavers earn a bowl berth.

Wisconsin is replacing Bret Bielema, who left the school last week to take over the helm at Arkansas.
