Nebraska Interim Coach Mickey Joseph Announces First Significant Change Since Scott Frost Was Fired

Nebraska interim coach Mickey Joseph.

The Nebraska football program has officially moved on from Scott Frost and now enters the Mickey Joseph era. Joseph has been named the interim head football coach.

Joseph, 54, is already making a significant change under his leadership. During Frost's tenure, Nebraska had off days on Sunday and resumed practice on Monday. With Joseph at the helm, he's making a significant change. 

Joseph will conduct practice now on Sundays, a day after gameday, and then give his team the day off on Monday before resuming practice on Tuesday. 

"Interim coach Mickey Joseph says his primary change will be to make Monday the off day for Nebraska. It had been Sunday. 'My No. 1 focus is the boys," Joseph says, "the players, that we make sure they’re OK… This is about Nebraska football. It’s bigger than me or anyone else,'" said Joseph, via Mitch Sherman. 

That's a pretty significant change for the Nebraska football program. Mickey Joseph clearly wants to emphasizing reviewing film the day after a game and getting back out on the practice field to review. 

It's a big change for the Nebraska football program. Hopefully it pays off with better play by the Huskers the rest of this season.
