The Nebraska football coaching search has seemed like it’s gone on for an absolute eternity. Interim head coach Mickey Joseph has done a great job navigating the challenging situation in Lincoln.

Nebraska seems to be closing in on finding its next head coach. Joseph, on Monday during his weekly presser, said that he has not talked to Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts about the role, nor has he had an interview.

Joseph had a separate interview with the Omaha World-Herald, and here is what he said about the potential of staying with the Huskers.

“I would sit down and talk with the family, talk to Trev and talk to the head coach and find out what my role would be,” Joseph said, “but I would love to stay,” according to Tom Shatel of the Omaha World-Herald.

Joseph has a 2-5 record at the helm as interim head coach for the Huskers. The Huskers have games against Wisconsin and Iowa left on the schedule before they wrap up their 2022 season.

The coaching search for Nebraska will soon be over, and all of the speculation and rumors will be answered, and there will be a new head man in Lincoln with a lot of work to do in a football-crazed state.
