Last season Bishop Auckland led by Riley finished eighth place finish in the The EBAC Northern Premier League.
Assistant manager and former Two-Blues boss Colin Myers will be placed in charge for Saturday’s home game against Newcastle Benfield.
A statement from the club that was released this afternoon confirmed that Riley had left the club.
