BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Noah Joseph joined the Indiana coaching staff as safeties coach and defensive recruiting coordinator on Feb. 20, 2014. He served as safeties coach and recruiting coordinator in 2012 and 2013 at the University of North Texas.
North Texas went 9-4 in 2013 with a victory in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. The Mean Green's nine wins tied for the second-most in program history.
Joseph spoke with IUHoosiers.com following Thursday's practice:
Joseph coached 2013 All-Conference USA selections Marcus Trice and Lairamie Lee. The safeties had a hand in 15 turnovers, including eight interceptions, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
Prior to his stint with North Texas, Joseph served as the co-defensive coordinator (2011), secondary coach and recruiting coordinator at Montana State.
In 2011, the Bobcats secondary was first in the Big Sky Conference in pass efficiency defense (18th nationally) and pass defense (22nd nationally).
Joseph coached at Eastern Illinois University from 2003-06 and produced one of the top pass efficiency defenses in the nation in 2005. He also worked as a graduate assistant at Drake University (2000), Eastern Kentucky University (2001) and Iowa State University (2002).
A former player at Drake, Joseph earned Academic All-Pioneer Football League honors and was captain of the 1998 team. Joseph holds the school record for the longest interception return (100 yards) at Wayne (Neb.) State in 1997.
