LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska receivers coach Keith Williams was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail, three years’ probation and fined $1,000 after pleading no contest to third-offense drunken driving.

Williams is to report to jail March 3, but a Lancaster County judge said Williams could apply for house arrest. Prosecutors requested that Williams go to jail because he never did time for previous DUI convictions. Williams’ driver’s license also has been revoked for five years, but he can apply for an ignition interlock after 45 days.

Williams was in his Chevrolet Camaro when he rear-ended an Uber driver’s vehicle about 1:50 a.m. on Aug. 14 in downtown Lincoln. Williams’ blood-alcohol was measured at 0.15 percent, nearly double the legal limit.

Coach Mike Riley suspended Williams for the first four games in 2016.

In a statement, the Nebraska athletic department said it was aware of Williams’ sentence.

“Since the incident in August, Keith has accepted responsibility for and acknowledged the seriousness of his actions, and we will continue to support him,” the statement said.
