Eyeing IU


IU hires safeties coach

Indiana coach Kevin Wilson filled out his football staff Thursday, naming Noah Joseph the Hoosiers' safeties coach.

Joseph held the same position, along with being the recruiting coordinator, at North Texas the last two seasons.

"Noah is a dynamic, energetic coach who is a great fit in our secondary and a very good recruiter," Wilson said in a release. "He has an impressive pedigree, tremendous enthusiasm and has experienced success at every stop in his career. We took our time with this hire and decided another coach in the secondary was best for our defense. (Defensive coordinator Brian) Knorr and I both felt very comfortable with Noah, and we are excited to welcome him and his family to IU."

Joseph was an assistant at Montana State for five seasons before moving to North Texas. He served as Montana State's co-defensive coordinator in 2011 and was also the team's secondary coach and recruiting coordinator.

He coached at Eastern Illinois from 2003-06 and was a graduate assistant at Drake (2000), Eastern Kentucky (2001) and Iowa State (2002).

"I am excited for this opportunity," Joseph said. "Growing up in Ohio, it has always been a dream of mine to coach in the Big Ten. When I met with the players, I was impressed with their excitement, competitive spirit, hunger and physical makeup. I am looking forward to bringing some juice to the defense and helping put IU on the national scene."
