Huskers’ aide suspended, will miss 4 games after DUI arrest

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska receivers coach Keith Williams has been suspended without pay until Aug. 31 and won’t be allowed to coach or attend the Cornhuskers’ first four games as a result of his arrest on suspicion of third-offense drunken driving last weekend.

Coach Mike Riley announced the disciplinary action in a statement Friday.

Riley said Williams has entered counseling and has pledged to assist the department, university and community in educational and outreach efforts to prevent drunk driving.

Williams expressed regret for his actions in a statement. He also apologized to his family, the football program and the university.

He says he understands there is “no room for error” for him at Nebraska.
