Nebraska head coach Mike Riley addressed reporters on Tuesday regarding the arrest of wide receiver coach Keith Williams for suspicion of his third DUI.
"We have a bad situation. It is one of those choices that we talk about all the time, and it applies to all of us," said Riley. "People get killed, kill others, and we know it's all bad. Like we do with everything, we will have an assessment and evaluation of it. Then you talk about things like intervention and education. And then there will be consequences that I'm not ready to talk about right now. We really don't know all the facts of what happened. We haven't talked to Keith personally. This is really hard on his son, daughter, and all that, so we are putting our arms around them."
Williams' son is a member of the Nebraska football team after transferring during the spring from Fresno State.
Riley told reporters when he was hired Williams cleared a background check, but the University was aware of his prior DUI convictions.
"Keith has been real transparent about his past," said Riley. "Regardless of all that, this is an obvious big mistake. A serious mistake. We will have to reevaluate and in that have the evaluation process."
Nebraska graduate assistant Hardie Buck coached the wide receivers on Monday during practices. Riley and offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf also spent more time with the receivers.
