Hoosiers not relying on Joseph for scouting

His role hasn’t expanded and he’s not the go-to scout.

Indiana safeties coach Noah Joseph spent the last two seasons in the same position at North Texas, but IU coach Kevin Wilson says he isn’t relying any more on Joseph this week than he would in any other. Joseph has provided occasional personnel assessments as the Hoosiers prepare for the Mean Green, but his job remains the same.

“I even said to Nate (Sudfeld), because Nate is a smart guy, ‘Don’t be talking to coach Joseph about all the (defensive backs) that he coached, because he’ll give you too much info,'” Wilson said. “‘Now you’re thinking — by the way, you got 1.7 seconds, you don’t need clutter in your mind.’ Bottom line, it’s a defensive structure that’s very sound, that’s been going around for a long time, there are coaches that we’ve went against that you do know, and there are coaches that do it well.”

Joseph is the second member of Indiana’s coaching staff to scheme against his former team this season. Defensive line coach Larry McDaniel coached the previous three seasons at Bowling Green, which beat IU 45-42 on Sept. 13.
