Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley wrapped up a successful Early Signing Day on Wednesday with a top-10 class. The Sooners are primed for future success with Riley at the helm and high school recruits around the country are clamoring to be a part of the program.

With all of the success Riley is having at Oklahoma it's only natural to wonder if he will head to the NFL level at any point. A logical destination is in Cleveland where he could partner with his former quarterback Baker Mayfield.

However, if Riley's latest comments are to be taken seriously, it looks like the Sooners will have their head coach for years to come.

According to John Shinn of the Tulsa World, Riley plans to be Oklahoma's head coach in the "coming years."

That's huge news for Oklahoma fans around the country that want to see Riley lead their team to the promised land.

Meanwhile, the Sooners are gearing up for a massive game against the defending national champions in the Alabama Crimson Tide.
