Nebraska is adding some west coast pedigree to its sidelines.
According to 247 Sports, Donte’ Williams, who was previously the cornerbacks coach for the University of Arizona, will be taking the same position with Nebraska’s football program.

Before working at Arizona, Williams had been defensive backs coach and recruiting coordinator at San Diego State for three years. He also worked for the Seattle Seahawks as an intern and at several junior colleges.
Williams will fill the vacancy left by the dismissal of former Huskers special teams coordinator and defensive backs coach Bruce Reed. What’s also important to note about Williams’ hiring: He’s a great recruiter, particularly on the West Coast and in Pac-12 areas.
This will bolster Nebraska’s recruiting efforts in a region where Nebraska hasn’t had many connections in the past.
