Update: LSU WR Coach Mickey Joseph Has Accepted Position On Nebraska's Staff

Football Scoop is reporting that Nebraska head coach Scott Frost is finalizing a deal to hire LSU wide receiver coach and recruiting coordinator Mickey Joseph to his staff in Lincoln.

Earlier this week it was reported that Frost was targeting Joseph.

Joseph, a 53-year-old Louisiana native, played quarterback at Nebraska from 1988-1991.

Multiple sources tell FootballScoop that Mickey Joseph, the Tigers' affable wide receivers coach and ace recruiter, has accepted a similar position on Frost's Cornhuskers' staff.

Joseph was set to inform his players and begin his new role at Nebraska, his alma mater, as quickly as possible.
Ed Orgeron hired Joseph to his staff as wide receiver coach in 2017 and gave him the title of assistant head coach in 2020. He signed a new two-year contract extension in May worth $500,000 in the first year and $550,000 in the second year. He is one of LSU's top recruiters on staff.

Joseph reportedly turned down an offer to become Nebraska's passing game coordinator and associate head coach after LSU won the 2019 National Championship.

Stay tuned...

All that means is he wasn’t asked to stay. That’s a 1 year job with Scott Frost.

He'll be looking for another school to coach at for the 2023 season when Frost is canned.

Joseph has to lookout for his job security and family but Kelly hasn't even had the time to talk with his prospective coaches. You have to be looking for your next job opportunity. But I have to question this move for Joseph as Frost's tenure at Nebraska is on very shaky ground and their QB, who Frost famously passed on Joe Burrows for, just entered the Transfer Portal. Questionable move for sure...

I’m sure CBK can & has taken the time to let certain coaches know if they should be ‘listening’ to other offers. I gotta think that’s 1 of the 1st things CBK & SW discussed after the Deal was signed. Do all the other coaches contracts terminate along w/the HC or are some/all independent deals?

Nothing unexpected in the world of 'building your own team'. Have been through several management changes and this is nothing different. BK needs first line managers that he can trust, and they can trust him. If a CEO doesn't have a history with someone, usually 'HE GONE'. RELAX people and let the process work itself out.

Have you seen Brian Kelly's coaching tree? It is friggen bad ass. Research man.

I'm starting to think that the Kelly hire will take a while to win a championship. Mickey joseph has been by far the best recruiter on staff the last few years in a row and develops his players very well. If Kelly is to be any good, he needs to pull his head out of his ass. I really wish woody would have e picked a damn good coach.

You are an imbecile. Everyone is replaceable. All of them. How many drops did out wideouts have this year? Dozens and Dozens. How many in 2019? 2. You know why? Not Mickey. It was because Brady made them each catch 10,000 passes over the summer. Mickey is a great recruiter and but an ok coach and whether or not you like it, he is replaceable.

Taking a job with a head coach that is on his way out is never a good option; unless it is your only option.

Frost regime at Nebraska is a sinking ship. Why in the world would he go there now?
Reply2 months
I guess Kelly didn’t plan to retain him, so he’s going to help fix the sinking ship at his alma mater

Is CBK going to keep him? New coaches usually bring in their own people.

The question really answers itself if you just think about it enough
