Williams and the Seminoles lost to Oregon in the Rose Bowl last week as their bid to repeat as national champions fell short.
In November, The New York Times reported that Williams and defensive back Ronald Darby were involved in a hit-and-run that was mishandled by the Tallahassee police. Williams was the driver in a collision with another vehicle while his license was already suspended.
