More damaging information had come out against former Nebraska Cornhuskers interim head coach Mickey Joseph. He was arrested on Wednesday.

According to the police affidavit, Joseph allegedly strangled a woman by putting his hands on her throat. He also allegedly pulled her hair and punched her.

He allegedly did this before leaving the scene of the incident. The police found Joseph at another residence.

At this time, he is facing a strangulation charge. He is also facing a third-degree domestic assault charge.

ESPN is reporting that Joseph denied the allegations against him. He was placed on administrative leave by Nebraska after the news came out to the media.

Joseph had an initial court hearing on Thursday. During the hearing, he did not enter a plea.

The judge has instructed Joseph not to have any contact with the victim. He has a $20,000 bond.

Joseph has yet to be named to new head coach Matt Rhule’s coaching staff. With this incident being pretty damaging to his reputation, Rhule may decide to go in another direction with the remaining spots he has available on his staff.

The 54-year-old was in his first year at his alma mater in 2022. He went 3-6 as the interim head coach after Scott Frost was fired in September.

His contract with Nebraska is set to expire in March 2023 if he is not retained on Rhule’s coaching staff.
