Riley coached at East Carolina with his brother from 2014-2015 and spent 2016-2018 with Kansas in various coaching roles. He was a running backs coach for App State this season and has now been made offensive coordinator.
Garrett was a quarterback on Texas Tech’s roster from 2008-2009.
Appalachian State has been a powerhouse since joining the Sun Belt. They’ve had four double-digit win seasons in six years and won five straight bowl games. They just lost head coach Eli Drinkwitz to Missouri.
