Sabbath Joseph is in his first season as an analyst on defense for Florida State in 2021.
Joseph, a former University of South Florida standout linebacker, was linebackers coach at Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens for 2020 after a seven-year stint coaching at Miami Central High School. As defensive coordinator, recruiting coordinator and linebackers coach, Joseph helped lead the Rockets during a run of four consecutive 6A state championships behind a defense that produced more than 40 Division I scholarship student-athletes, 20 all-state honorees and three Under Armour All-American linebackers. As a player at USF, the Miami native accumulated 124 tackles, including 12.0 for loss with 3.0 sacks, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one interception and seven pass breakups in 48 games played. He was a 6A first-team all-state selection his senior year at Miami Central and was ranked as the 10th-best senior prospect in Miami by the Miami Herald.
Joseph earned his bachelor’s degree in behavioral science from South Florida in 2010.
