Report: LSU assistant in the mix for open Stephen F. Austin head coaching job
Arkansas assistant Jeff Traylor has already been linked to the open job at his alma mater, Stephen F. Austin.
Now, it appears a second SEC assistant is in the mix to be the new coach of the Lumberjacks, per a Wednesday night report.
As you can see in the tweet from ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg below, LSU WR coach Mickey Joseph is also in consideration for the FCS school:
#Arkansas RBs coach Jeff Traylor is interviewing this week for head-coaching vacancy at Stephen F. Austin, his alma mater, according to sources. Heard #LSU wide receivers coach Mickey Joseph is also in the mix at SFA.

Unlike Traylor, who is a Stephen F. Austin alum, Joseph is not connected to the school in any way, it seems. Joseph is a Louisiana native who went to Nebraska.
SFA has a big decision to make, and getting SEC assistants in the mix is never a bad thing, especially for an FCS program.
