Joseph, 54, played at Nebraska from 1988-1991. He returned to the Huskers program earlier this year as the team’s wide receivers coach, associate head coach, and passing game coordinator. He was promoted to interim head coach after Scott Frost was fired in September. Nebraska went 3-6 under Joseph. The team has since hired Matt Rhule as their new head coach.
Joseph was placed on administrative leave following his arrest.
