Riley, who was a longtime coach at Davidson High School, recently retired from the Mobile County Public School System after a freshman quarterback suffered a broken arm during an alleged hazing incident. According to a MCPSS official, the school board approved Riley's resignation on Monday, September 24.

According to ASFA website, Riley has been a part of over 90 players moving on to play college football and currently has former players in the National Football League Canadian Football League, the new AAF, and the Arena League.

The site went on to say that Riley has led his teams to over 150 wins as a head coach. 

The organization will work with young male adults (ages 18-35) on their skills on and off the field. The ASFA is hoping to bring excitement across the Southeast with this new league.

ASFA will hold their first league meeting on November 10, 2018 in Mobile, Alabama.
