LOS ANGELES -- Sal Alosi, the former New York Jets assistant coach who resigned last year after tripping an opposing player on the sideline, has been hired by UCLA as its strength and conditioning coordinator.

Bruins coach Jim Mora announced the hiring Monday of Alosi, who had worked at Bryant University since August, for the newly created position. Alosi was a member of Mora's staff with the Atlanta Falcons in 2006.

Alosi was initially docked without pay and fined $25,000 by the Jets for sticking out his knee to trip Miami's Nolan Carroll during a game on Dec. 12, 2010. He was suspended indefinitely by the team a few days later after acknowledging he ordered players to form a wall along the sideline, and resigned less than two months later.
