You might recall the tiny uproar created last year when former Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi stuck out his leg and tripped Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll on the sideline during a Miami punt.
He was suspended immediately, fined $25,000 by the Jets (who were fined $100,000 by the league), and Alosi resigned after the 2010 season was complete.
Now, he’s got another job, as UCLA announced that new coach Jim Mora Jr., has hired Alosi as the school’s strength and conditioning coach.
"These coaches are all important elements to us moving our program forward," Mora, who also hired a new receivers coach, said in a statement. "We welcome them, as coaches and teachers on and off the field, to the UCLA football family."
First rule that Alosi the teacher should impart to his new charges. No tripping!!! We hear that gets people in trouble.
