On Sunday, Nebraska coach Mike Riley fired Bruce Read following the Huskers’ 40-10 loss to Iowa in the regular-season finale.
According to HuskerOnline.com, Williams had a hand in landing nine commits for Arizona’s 2017 recruiting class and is “regarded as one of the top recruiters in the Pac-12 Conference.”
Williams has been on the Arizona staff since January, when Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez hired him from San Jose State. Williams played at Syracuse (2003) and Idaho State (2004-2005) before coaching stops at Los Angeles Harbor College, El Camino College and Mt. San Antonio College. He also had a coaching internship with the Seattle Seahawks.
