Former interim head coach for the Nebraska football team during the 2022 season taken into custody for domestic assault

LINCOLN, Nebraska – On Wednesday in Lincoln, police took Mickey Joseph into custody. During the 2022 football season, Joseph was the temporary head coach of the Nebraska football team.

Joseph was taken into custody at two in the afternoon near South 34th and Tree Line Drive in connection with a domestic incident, as stated by the Lincoln Police Department.

He is accused of domestic abuse and of attempting to strangle his girlfriend.

“After the investigation was completed, Robert “Mickey” Joseph, age 54 and a resident of Lincoln, was taken into custody at a different location and charged with strangulation and third-degree domestic assault. According to a notice from the Lancaster Police Department, “He was booked in the Lancaster County Jail.” Additional information, such as the identify of the victim in this case and whether or not the victim had any injuries, will not be made public in accordance with the laws of the state of Nebraska to ensure the victim’s safety.

The following statement was issued by Nebraska Athletic Director Trev Alberts: “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.” At this time, we will not be providing any additional remark.

Joseph, who has just finished his first year at Nebraska after transferring from LSU, was the interim head coach of the Huskers and led them to a record of 3-6 during his tenure in that post.

Fans of the University of Nebraska have been waiting to learn whether or not Matt Rhule’s hiring as the new head coach of the Huskers will result in the retention of Joseph on the coaching staff of the Huskers. Rhule was hired by the athletic administration on Monday.
