Michigan’s Moore, TCU’s Riley lead CFP teams

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — TCU’s Garrett Riley seemed destined to follow his older brother into coaching when he walked onto the Texas Tech football team as a player.

Michigan’s Sherrone Moore’s path to the profession wasn’t so easy, but when she finished playing, she was confident that coaching was her calling.

Both offensive coordinators are rising stars as they square off in the Fiesta Bowl in a College Football Playoff semifinal Saturday between No. 2 Michigan and No. 3 TCU. A pair of millennials with old souls, Moore and Riley appear to be on a fast track to head coaching jobs, eventually.

“When the time comes, the time comes, but I’m in no rush to leave this place, this great university, these students and coach (Jim) Harbaugh,” Moore, 36, said this week.

Riley, the 33-year-old younger brother of USC coach Lincoln Riley, is also trying to live in the moment.

“I think the approach I’ve always had is, man, you’re in the big time wherever you are,” he said.
