Nebraska's Former Interim Head Coach Mickey Joseph Was Arrested For Strangulation And 3rd Degree Domestic Assault

NY Post - Mickey Joseph, who was Nebraska football’s interim head coach this season, was arrested Wednesday on domestic assault and strangulation charges, Lincoln Police have announced.

Joseph was named interim coach after Scott Frost was fired three games into the season; Nebraska has since named Matt Rhule as its next head coach.

Lincoln Police Department said in a release on Wednesday that they were dispatched on a domestic disturbance.

“Upon concluding the investigation, Robert ‘Mickey’ Joseph, age 54 of Lincoln, was arrested at a separate location, for Strangulation and 3rd Degree Domestic Assault. He was lodged in the Lancaster County Jail,” the release stated.

Robert Mickey Joseph...confirmed BAD GUY. 

If you remember on Pick Em earlier this year, Big Cat talked about interim coach Mickey Joseph getting to coach as an interim vs Oklahoma, who famously hit him super late out of bounds while he was playing QB at Nebraska. 

Obviously a really ugly situation here at Nebraska with Mickey Joseph being accused of doing extremely horrific shit. I'm not sure what will happen next but the Lincoln Police seem to be on top of everything. 

Tough day for the Cornhuskers. I'm sure more details of the story will unfold but for now, Katie Stats pretty much summed it up from a football standpoint here.
