The Mickey Joseph train has left the station. I read that his court date isn't until sometime next month - I doubt Rhule is going to hold the door open for him. His reputation took a fatal or near fatal hit (even if charges are dropped). I'd bet other programs would use that against him personally and the Husker program in recruiting wars.I think they are giving Mickey a fair amount of time to see if his personal problems can be "settled down".
If there was not sever physical injury then his wife has a "fork in the road" to discuss with her lawyer.
One fork: go for severe criminal charges for Mickey, in which case he will not be working as a coach for many years, if ever. Bad news for her is that his ability to provide financial support for her and her, I believe six children is gone.
Second fork: Quietly withdraw charges, her lawyer sets up, from a position of strength, a great divorce settlement with alimony and child support, which he can now pay since he would be employable and never contact her again.
She could even "support him" in getting the WR coach job at DONU and then officially divorce him in the spring.
I am sure her lawyer is advising her to take fork #2 as the best option for her family.
This maybe why the WR job remains open.
