Mickey Joseph, Former Nebraska Coach, Faces Domestic Assault Charges

A Shocking Turn of Events

The football world was rocked recently when Mickey Joseph, the former assistant coach for Nebraska, found himself at the center of a highly controversial situation. On November 30, 2022, the Lincoln, Nebraska police department made the shocking announcement that they had arrested Mickey Joseph on charges of 3rd Degree Domestic Assault and Strangulation. This arrest occurred at 1:54 pm on a Wednesday afternoon, just days after Nebraska had hired Matt Rhule as the new head coach.

Nebraska was already in a state of transition as Matt Rhule, the newly appointed head coach, took the reins. In his introductory press conference just a few days prior, Rhule mentioned his intention to meet with Mickey Joseph later that week to discuss the possibility of Joseph joining Rhule’s coaching staff.

The swift turn of events and the gravity of the allegations caught the attention of the university and its athletic director, Trev Alberts. In response to the situation, Alberts issued a statement: “I was made aware of the charges against Coach Joseph, and given the nature of the allegations and based on University policy, he has been placed on administrative leave. We will have no additional comment at this time.”

A Brief Look Back

Mickey Joseph, who had joined the Nebraska coaching staff under former head coach Scott Frost for the 2022 season, had already taken on a significant role within the program. He stepped into the position of Interim Head Coach after Scott Frost was fired due to the team’s 1-2 start. Despite the challenging circumstances, Joseph led the team through the remainder of the season, finishing with a record of 3 wins and 6 losses.

Unfolding Developments

The situation involving Mickey Joseph is rapidly evolving, and new information is emerging. The arrest came following a domestic disturbance that took place near S 34th & Tree Line Drive in Lincoln, Nebraska. After conducting a thorough investigation, the Lincoln Police Department arrested Robert ‘Mickey’ Joseph, a 54-year-old resident of Lincoln, on charges of Strangulation and 3rd Degree Domestic Assault. Joseph was subsequently lodged in jail.

As the story continues to develop, it remains a matter of great concern within the Nebraska football community and the broader sports world. The consequences of these charges could have far-reaching implications for both Mickey Joseph and the University of Nebraska.
