LSU wide receivers coach Mickey Joseph coaches in the second half of the Tigers' 65-14 win over the Demons, Saturday, September 14, 2019, on LSU's campus in Baton Rouge, La. The win is the 800th victory in the history of the LSU football program.

In a week filled with departures, a member of LSU's coaching staff turned down an opportunity to leave campus.

LSU wide receivers coach Mickey Joseph turned down a promotion to join Nebraska's coaching staff as passing game coordinator and associate head coach, according to multiple reports.

The news was first reported by 247Sports.

Joseph signed a two-year contract extension that expires March 31, 2021, which pays him $310,000 per year.

Such a move would have reunited Joseph with his alma mater. The Archbishop Shaw graduate played quarterback at Nebraska from 1988-1991. Although Joseph has not coached at Nebraska, he would have been joining fellow former Cornhusker quarterback, Scott Frost, who is entering his third season as head coach.

Nebraska has gone 9-15 under Frost, an the Cornhuskers have not had a winning season since going 9-4 in 2016.
