“The Nebraska Athletics Department is aware of the incident involving Assistant Coach Keith Williams. We will continue to gather additional information and will withhold further comment at this time.”
Nebraska wide receivers coach Keith Williams was cited early Sunday for suspicion of DUI after being involved in an accident. Williams has two prior DUI-related convictions on his record.
According to the police report, Williams was involved in an accident, but no further details have been made public. The Omaha World-Herald’s Sam McKewon reported that Williams was in jail as late as Sunday afternoon, and other reports indicated that he would not be released prior to his arraignment Monday.
Keith Williams is in Lancaster County Jail until court appearance at 2 p.m. Monday.
