Nebraska’s Bo Pelini has hired Terry Joseph as the Huskers’ new secondary coach. Joseph was the defensive backs coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Tennessee on Coach Derek Dooley’s staff for the past two seasons. The 38-year-old Joseph has helped the Tennessee defense rank among the nation’s top pass defenses each of the past two seasons.
In a statement released late Wednesday Joseph said, “Coming to a place like Nebraska was a great opportunity for me, and then to throw in the chance to work with Bo again, it was the perfect fit. I am excited to get to work with our players and other coaches as we start spring ball and get prepared for the season.”
Joseph worked alongside Pelini as a defensive graduate assistant at LSU in 2006 and will take over a Nebraska defensive backfield that returns nine players who started at least one game in 2011.
