Mickey Is A Sports Star
In 2018, Joseph took a group of young, untested receivers and turned them into a reliable, play-making unit by the end of the year.
In his first year at LSU, Joseph helped turn wide receiver DJ Chark into an explosive playmaker. He was one of the leaders in the SEC in yards per catch (21.9) and yards per game (67.2). Chark made the All-SEC second team after catching 40 passes for 874 yards and three touchdowns. He was also a threat in the punt return game.
He led the SEC with two punt return touchdowns, finished second in the league with 190 punt return yards, and averaged over 10 yards per punt return (10.6).
His 75-yard punt return for a touchdown against Auburn helped the Tigers come back from a 20-point first-half deficit to win 27-23. It was the biggest SEC comeback in Tiger Stadium history for LSU.
Joseph joined the LSU team in 2016 after coaching running backs at Louisiana Tech. In his one year in Ruston, Joseph helped the Bulldogs to a 9-5 overall record and a 48-45 win over the 25th-ranked Navy in the Armed Forces Bowl.
In 2016, the Bulldogs averaged 44.3 points per game, which put them at No. 2 in the country for scoring. Tech averaged 514.9 yards per game, including 363.4 yards through the air and 151.6 yards on the ground.
