In the aftermath of the Cleveland Browns firing head coach Hue Jackson, many people put Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley at the top of the list of candidates. Given his history with rookie QB Baker Mayfield when he was a star for the Sooners, it might seem reasonable.Of course, Mayfield himself might have a role in who becomes the team’s next head coach, and he was asked what he thought about Riley this week.In a relatively safe response, Mayfield said that while he loved his former college coach, he was going to make due with what he has in Cleveland now.“I love Linc, but we have what we have,” Mayfield said. “He’s doing his thing and I’m doing mine.”Would Baker Mayfield like to see Lincoln Riley become the Browns head coach?“I love Linc, but we have what we have. He’s doing his thing and I’m doing mine.” pic.twitter.com/Cb3ukeb3QD— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) October 31, 2018Riley has recently stated that he doesn’t have “that itch” to coach at the NFL level at this time.Last year, in his first year as head coach of the Sooners, Riley coached Mayfield into college football’s top QB. Their year together culminated in a Heisman trophy for Mayfield, a Big 12 title for Oklahoma, and a spot in the College Football Playoffs.Hue Jackson was fired after a 2-5-1 start to the season.
