Mickey Joseph is getting ready for his new role as Nebraska’s interim coach as the program is searching for a new head coach.

Joseph will be shifting from an assistant role to a head coaching role with the Cornhuskers. He knows how important this change will be for the program per Sam McKewon of the Omaha-World Herald.

“This is about Nebraska football,” said Joseph. “It’s bigger than me and anyone else.”

Joseph also gave his thoughts on what Nebraska has been lacking in its first three games. He believes that Nebraska needs to get better in all three phrases of the game after starting off 1-2. He also gave some insight into his approach for the next 9 games.

“We haven’t played well in 3 phases of the game,” said Joseph. “We’ve gotta get better on offense, defense and special teams. Everybody has to pull on the same side of the rope. We gotta take one week at a time. When we get to 9 we’ll see where we’re at.”

Lastly, Joseph wants to leave his own mark on the program. He’s promising that he will bring a lot of energy, and expects his players to give everything they have.

“I’m going to be detailed, high-energy and I expect them to leave it all out on the field,” said Joseph. “I believe I saw that in practice today.”
