Friday Flakes: Report that Mickey Joseph Is Finalizing Deal to Coach Wide Receivers at Nebraska

New, comments

While it would be a big hire, it is not yet final and don’t celebrate until the ink is on the bottom line.

It is not official yet but it sounds like Mickey Joseph is planning on taking his talents to Lincoln, NE to coach wide receivers for Nebraska. Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald reported this yesterday.

Hopefully we get the official word sooner than later. You never know if Brian Kelly, who just took the LSU job, is looking to keep Mickey Joseph as a coach at LSU. It seems to be a perfect pairing there in Louisiana but who knows what is going on behind the scenes.

Regardless, it would be okay to celebrate if we get the official word that Joseph is coming to Nebraska.


Speaking of Brian Kelly.

What in the world is this?
