In an effort to fill some of their dirty play needs, the UCLA Bruins hired former New York Jets assistant coach Sal Alosi to serve as strength and conditioning coordinator for the football team.
Alosi, of course, famously resigned from his post with the Jets last year after a video of him blatantly and purposely tripping Nolan Carroll of the Miami Dolphins became a viral sensation. That, coupled with the news that he at one point instructed his inactive players to form a wall to further impede Miami’s players proved to be enough for him have his time with the team cut short.
The NFL ended up fining the Jets $100,000 for what happened.
That checkered past, apparently, also makes Alosi a great candidate to work for new UCLA coach, Jim Mora. Here is the statement Mora released about the hiring of Alosi and several others:
"These coaches are all important elements to us moving our program forward. We welcome them, as coaches and teachers on and off the field, to the UCLA football family."
After his time with the Jets, Alosi worked as a personal trainer out of his home in New Jersey for a while. Then, once he got tired of tripping family members and assorted neighbors, Alosi took a job with Bryant College in Rhode Island.
