Sean Callahan just tweeted out news that had been circulating throughout the day, Nebraska Cornhuskers Defensive Backs coach Terry Joseph will be leaving the program to take the same job with The Texas A&M Aggies.
The Texas A&M Rivals site is reporting that Terry Joseph has been offered the job and accepted. #huskers

Joseph just completed his second year with Nebraska and has been instrumental in helping develop players like Ciante Evans, Stanley Jean Baptiste, Corey Cooper, and several others. Joseph has also been heavily involved in the recruiting process with 2014 commitments from DB Trai Mosely out of Pflugerville TX and ATH Jaevon Walton from New Orleans. He has also been a fan favorite, being one of only a few coaches that has really dodged scrutiny of any kind.
If the reports are true, Joseph will leave a huge void in recruiting efforts. With the dead period ending on January 16, Nebraska will need to fill the position as quickly as possible in the hopes of convincing current targets to stay true to Nebraska. He has also been hitting the trail in an attempt to convince several remaining targets that Nebraska is still pursuing.
Whomever Bo Pelini might hire to be the next DB coach, Husker Nation should feel good about it. Throughout his tenure as coach of The Huskers he has done well in filling the position. Marvin Sanders, Corey Raymond, and Terry Joseph have all produced NFL caliber defensive backs.
