UT assistant Terry Joseph leaves Vols for coaching job with Nebraska

KNOXVILLE — Tennessee football coach Derek Dooley can add hiring another defensive assistant to his to-do list between now and spring practice.

The Volunteers lost their seventh assistant coach since the end of the 2011 season on Friday, when Terry Joseph confirmed to a pair of web sites, VolQuest and govols247, that he was accepting an offer to join Nebraska's staff as defensive backs coach. UT's safeties coach and recruiting coordinator did not return a phone call from the Times Free Press. Neither school confirmed the hire as of Friday night.

Joseph's departure leaves Jim Chaney and Darin Hinshaw as the lone two assistants who were with the Vols last season. Chaney enters his fourth year as offensive coordinator, but Hinshaw will move from the quarterbacks to receivers.
