Nebraska head football coach Mike Riley calls the DUI arrest of one of his assistants a “bad situation.”
This is the third time wide receivers coach Keith Williams has been ticketed for DUI.
“Bottom line, most important – this is dangerous, dangerous stuff and people get killed, kill others, kill themselves,” Riley told reporters. “We know it’s all bad.”
Riley had not talked to Williams as of Monday morning, but hopes to soon.
“Talk about things like intervention and education, and then, there will be consequences,” Riley says, “which I’m not ready to talk about right now, because we really don’t know all the facts of what happened.”
Williams has a court appearance Monday at 2 p.m. in Lancaster County court.
“This is really, really hard on his son, wife, daughter, all that, so we’ve put our arms around them,” Riley says.
Police ticketed Williams after he was involved in a wreck in downtown Lincoln. His blood alcohol level was .15, nearly double the state’s legal limit of .08.
Williams is in his second year at Nebraska.
