UPDATED 3/5 @ 9:00 a.m. ET: It still hasn’t been made official by Nebraska, but the Terry Joseph-to-Cornhuskers reports appear to be all but set in stone. Joseph wouldn’t confirm to the Omaha World-Herald that he had accepted the defensive backs coaching job with the Nebraska, but did reportedly confirm it to 247Sports over the weekend.
Coachingsearch said the could confirm the hire last week, but other other publications began picking up on the hire later in the week as well.
Tennessee coach Derek Dooley has faced significant turnover on his coaching staff this offseason. A month after that turnover was said to be finished, Dooley may have yet another coaching hire to conduct.
Both Coachingsearch.com and The Knoxville News Sentinel are linking Vols DB coach Terry Joseph to the open secondary coach job at Nebraska that has become vacant with the departure of Corey Raymond to LSU. Raymond had previously said he had no interest in returning to his alma mater before bolting earlier this week.
Coachingsearch says they expect Joseph to accept the job, but the News Sentinel only states that Joseph has an offer, and whether or not he will accept is unknown. Joseph, a former assistant at Louisiana Tech, followed Dooley to Knoxville in 2010.
Eariler this month, Tennessee announced Derrick Ansley would be the Vols’ new co-defensive backs coach.
