Riley Dodge (born October 12, 1988[1]) is a former American football player and currently quality control assistant at The University of Texas.

High school career[edit]

Dodge prepped at Carroll High School of Southlake, Texas, where he was coached by his dad, Todd Dodge, and later Hal Wasson. Dodge played behind former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Greg McElroy. As a junior, Dodge gained 4,184 yards and 54 touchdowns passing, plus 1,119 yards and 13 scores rushing, in Todd Dodge's trademark no-huddle spread offense. His 54 TD passes tie fellow Southlake Carroll alumnus Chase Wasson for third all-time in Texas high school football history.[2]

Southlake Carroll won the 5A Texas state championship in 2006 with a 43-29 win over Austin Westlake.

Playing for coach Wasson as a senior, Dodge threw for 3,445 yards and 39 touchdowns in 2007. Southlake Carroll lost to Abilene in the regional semifinals, ending their 58-game winning streak against Texas teams.

College career[edit]

Growing up as a Texas Longhorns fan,[2] Dodge verbally committed to play for Mack Brown in February 2007. However, he later changed his mind, and eventually signed a letter of intent to play at University of North Texas for his father, head coach Todd Dodge.[3] While at North Texas, he played quarterback and later moved to wide receiver.[4] In January 2010, he announced his intention to leave North Texas and enrolled at McNeese State University in Lake Charles where he had two years of eligibility left to play football.[5] His father no longer coaches at North Texas.

After College[edit]

On April 16, 2013, Dodge was hired at The University of Texas as a quality control quarterbacks coach.
