Mickey Joseph is currently on campus at Alcorn State University as of late Friday morning.  He is a former Nebraska quarterback and recently joined the staff at Alcorn State as wide receiver coach. He served as head coach at Langston for two seasons and did a NFL Minority Intern with the Houston Texans in 2012.

Central State University head coach E.J. Junior told WSAV this morning that he has not heard anything from Savannah State, and has NOT been offered the job.  He's currently in Ohio.
