After firing Scott Frost Saturday, Nebraska now has its first Black head coach in school history as Mickey Joseph takes over as interim head coach. Across all sports, Nebraska has never had a Black head coach until now.

 Joseph played quarterback for Nebraska from 1988-1991. He has been a position coach at several different schools and was wide receivers coach at LSU before joining Frost’s staff at Nebraska. He also has some experience as a head coach.

He was wide receivers coach this season as well as assistant head coach. As a head coach, he has a 13-7 record.

Frost’s firing comes after a rocky 1-2 start to the season with losses to Northwestern and Georgia Southern.

Joseph will have a big challenge in his first game as head coach, taking on Oklahoma on Saturday.
