Joseph bounced between collegiate organizations between 1999 and 2004, working at Colorado, Wyoming, and Bowling Green as either a graduate assistant or defensive backs coach.
The Denver Broncos have found a new head coach.
Will Joseph keep Wade Phillips on as defensive coordinator?
The Broncos are expected to be nearly $40 million under the salary cap for the 2017 season and could have as many as 10 draft picks after compensatory picks are handed out in March.
Joseph, now 44, started six of 13 games for the Jets during his one year with the team. The Dolphins (10-7) reached the playoffs for the first time since the 2008 season and Joseph's opportunistic defense sealed a handful of those wins.
In a move that had been anticipated since the retirement of Gary Kubiak, the Denver Broncos selected their next head coach.
After interviewing Tuesday, the AP reported that Joseph returned to Broncos headquarters Wednesday after scuttling plans to fly to California to interview with the San Diego Chargers, the San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams. McCoy lasted four years in the position before being fired January 1 at the conclusion of a 5-11 campaign.

The new sanctions came less than two weeks before President-elect Donald Trump is set to succeed outgoing President Barack Obama. He added that at the moment he could not say whether Moscow would take any retaliatory measures in response to these sanctions.
Joseph was rumored to the frontrunner for the Denver job. Joseph also spent two seasons in the National Football League as a cornerback, one with the New York Jets in 1995 and another with the Indianapolis Colts in 1996. Phillips has said all along he wants to return to the Broncos and bringing in a new coach he has a history could help ensure he's back for another go as defensive coordinator.
Kubiak announced he was stepping away from coaching because of health issues at the end of the season.
This could mean a position change for several stars on Denver's defense, including Von Miller, Brandon Marshall, Sylvester Williams, and Derek Wolfe.
Paul Klee, Woody Paige and David Ramsey will be writing about the Broncos coaching hire.
Joseph beat out Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, the son of former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan, and Kansas City Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub.
The biggest attribute that's drawn the Broncos to him like a moth to a flame? With the success of the Dolphins in 2016, he has been tabbed as the next great defensive-minded head coaching candidate.
After the Broncos won Super Bowl 50, every coach whose contract expired after the 2016 season received a one-year extension - with the exception of Phillips. His philosophy is to attack. "Just getting after it, being aggressive", Dolphins DE Cam Wake said before the season began.
