The felony assault charges against former Nebraska Cornhuskers interim Head Coach Mickey Joseph have been dropped. According to the report, the charges were dropped because the accuser refused to testify. In November Joseph was arrested and charged with felony assault which included strangulation or suffocation. A hearing was scheduled, but after an email to the prosecutor that the accusor would not testify that will not move forward at this time. Joseph was named the interim Head Coach of the Cornhuskers after the program fired Head Coach Scott Frost.

While Mickey Joseph was briefly considered for the open Head Coach vacancy, ultimately the team went with former Carolina Panthers Head Coach Matt Rhule. This arrest and the charges were released to the press around the same time that the program decided to go with Rhule. The police affidavit from the accuser had the following statement: “He pushed me on the couch and strangled me.”
This seems to be the end of this particular story and it is unclear when and if Mickey Jospeh will get another job coaching in college football. If this story is updated any, we here at Def Pen Sports will provide that here.
