Nebraska coach Mike Riley has added Donte Williams to his coaching staff. Williams spent this past season on the staff at Arizona and will coach the Husker corners. He replaces Bruce Read, who was fired as special teams coordinator and Riley says the staff will no longer have a special teams coach.
“In doing that will spread the special teams amongst our coaching staff”, said Riley.
Brian Stewart will shift his focus to the Nebraska safeties, and defensive coordinator Mark Banker will return solely to the coordinator role after also tutoring the safety position in 2016.
A 2006 Idaho State University graduate, Williams played college football at Syracuse in 2003 and Idaho State in 2004 and 2005. Williams played two seasons in Arena Football League 2 (AF2) for the Rio Grande Valley Dorados (2007) and Arkansas Twisters (2008). He was a first-team all-league player and a defensive team captain in each of his two seasons.
