Former Nebraska WRs coach lands job with Baltimore Ravens
A former member of Nebraska’s staff under Mike Riley has landed a new job with the Baltimore Ravens.
Keith Williams has been hired as the pass game specialist for the Ravens for the upcoming season. The franchise officially introduced Williams in his new role with a statement on Saturday. He has recently been a personal coach for NFL wide receivers Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins and Davante Adams.
“Keith has extensive experience working as a personal coach for some of the NFL’s top wide receivers,” said Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh. “His offensive knowledge — particularly in the passing game — and his ability to get the very best out of his players aligns well with the values of our coaching staff.”
We have added four assistant coaches to the staff, including a Pass Game Specialist and WR Coach.

Williams was a member of Nebraska’s staff under Riley from 2015-17, coaching the wide receivers. Before that, he coached the receivers at Tulane (2012-14), Fresno State (2009-11) and San Jose State (2001-04) at the FBS level.
He also had stops at San Jose City College (2005-08) and Solano College (2000).
Baltimore finished the 2020 season with an 11-5 record and reached the playoffs at the end of the season. After defeating the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card Round, the Ravens fell to the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional Round.
