Former Husker QB returns to NU as part of Scott Frost's coaching staff


(Lincoln, NE) -- A former Husker quarterback is returning to Nebraska as part of Scott Frosts's coaching staff.

On Friday, Nebraska Head Coach Scott Frost announced that Mickey Joseph will join the Husker coaching staff as Wide Receivers Coach/Passing Game Coordinator/Associate Head Coach. Nebraska athletics says Joseph joins Nebraska after five seasons as the wide receivers coach at LSU, and he brings more than 25 years of coaching experience to Frost's staff. "I am honored to return to Nebraska to join Coach Frost's staff," Joseph said. "I can't wait to get to Lincoln to work with our players and represent Nebraska Football. Once you are a Husker your love for the program never leaves you and my family and I could not be more excited."

Joseph, a New Orleans native, was part of an offensive staff that helped LSU set numerous SEC records in 2019, including passing yards, passing TDs and total offense per game en route to a 15-0 season and national championship.

"Mickey Joseph brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our coaching staff," Frost said. "He is an excellent teacher and mentor for young players and is a proven recruiter. We are excited to bring Mickey back to his alma mater and have him play a key role in the success of our offense."

Joseph joined the LSU staff in 2017 after serving as the running backs coach at Louisiana Tech in 2016, coaching receivers and special teams at Grambling in 2014 and 2015. He has also coached at Alcorn State, Langston University, Central Oklahoma, Nicholls State, Alabama State, Tulane and Wayne State. He also had high school stops at Archbishop Shaw, his alma mater in New Orleans, Omaha North High and Desire Street Academy, a private school in New Orleans' Ninth Ward area.

Joseph was the Gatorade National Player of the Year and a first-team Parade All-American in 1988. Joseph started nine games in his Nebraska career, rushing for 1,091 yards and 16 touchdowns, while passing for 909 yards and 14 touchdowns. During his four seasons, Nebraska posted a 39-9-1 overall record, won two Big Eight titles, while playing in two Orange Bowl games, a Citrus Bowl and a Fiesta Bowl.

Joseph's hiring is pending the completion of a University of Nebraska background check.
