Terry Joseph, New Orleans native and former University of Nebraska secondary coach, will replace Marcel Yates as the Texas A&M secondary coach, said head coach Kevin Sumlin on Tuesday.

In the 2012 season under Joseph, Nebraska’s secondary ranked second in the FBS while holding opponents under a 50 percent completion rate.

Before his collegiate coaching career began, Joseph coached at two Louisiana high schools for seven years. Joseph’s college coaching debut came in 2006 as a graduate assistant for LSU, helping LSU’s No. 2-ranked defense to a Sugar Bowl victory over Notre Dame.

Along with his talents in coaching, Sumlin said Joseph is a strong recruiter whose ties to Louisiana could benefit the Aggie recruiting effort in the state.

“I’ve followed Terry’s career for many years and I think he’s done a great job building defensive secondaries everywhere he’s been,” Sumlin said. “Terry fits in well with our staff and he’s a tremendous recruiter. He has deep ties to the state of Louisiana, which is a very important recruiting area to our program. I’m happy to be able to get Terry to Texas A&M.”
