“He was a Nebraska guy who wanted to walk-on at Nebraska,” Riley said. “And somebody found out he could punt, and boy could he punt, but he brought joy every day out on this field.”
Riley goes on to speak, somewhat bluntly, on the fact that he’s mostly powerless in this situation, as there’s not much he can do to make anyone feel better. However, he—and the rest of the Huskers—plan to honor Foltz.

Riley was also asked about assistant coach Keith Williams, who was cited over the weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence.
“That’s another very, very serious matter,” Riley said. “We’re all really disappointed in this.”
Riley went on to say that nothing has been decided regarding Williams’ future with the team.
