Riley Wallace (born October 25, 1941 in Alton, Illinois) was the men's basketball coach at the University of Hawaii. When Wallace took over the program in 1987, it had suffered through four-straight losing seasons, including a combined 11-43 mark during the latter two years. He has guided Hawaii to nine of its 12 all-time postseason appearances, including a school-record streak of four straight from 2001-04. The Warriors have appeared in the NCAA Tournament three times under Wallace and have been invited to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) on six occasions. Prior to his arrival, the program had just one NCAA appearance and two trips to the NIT.
Wallace announced his resignation following the end of the 2006-'07 season on December 29, 2006.
