BAKER MAYFIELD: He’s been a guy that I can talk to about anything, and normally, you don’t get that of a head coach. So he could be just a coach who gets paid a lot of money just to do the football schemes, but no. I mean, he gets to know you and really impacts your life.
I know I would not be the football player I am today without Coach Riley. I had my mentality, my edge that I played with, but you know, how he came in, and he just kind of let me be who I am and let that go. And he’s realized when I’m going to be at my best, and he’s encouraged that.
