Returning for his fourth season as a member of Jim Margraff’s coaching staff is David Josephson. Josephson will work with the Blue Jay wide receivers this season after spending last season as a defensive assistant and the previous two years coaching the running backs. He joined the staff in 2013 after his playing career was cut short by an injury. Undaunted, he continued his contribution to the program by quickly becoming a valuable student assistant - immersing himself in all aspects of the coaching staff.
Josephson worked with a young crop of Blue Jay running backs in 2013 that produced 260.9 rushing yards per game and 37 touchdowns on the year. The team’s 2,870 rushing yards, 260.9 yards per game and 37 rushing touchdowns all ranked second in Johns Hopkins history at the time. In 2014, the Blue Jay running game accounted for 204.2 yards per game and added 34 rushing touchdowns on the year, while he seamlessly transitioned to the defensive side of the ball in 2015 and promptly helped coach a unit that forced 38 turnovers, the third highest total in school history.
In each of Josephson’s two years working with the running backs, Johns Hopkins produced a First Team All-Centennial performer.
