Man, Assitant Coaches Must Not Make Shit at UCLA

First, UCLA receivers coach Eric Scott and two other men were arrested on suspicion of felony residential burglary earlier this week. Now, it's getting worse.

The investigation is expanding because a discarded gun was found at the home as well as "a large quantity of narcotics."

In addition, UCLA coach Karl Dorrell admitted he hired Scott even though he was aware of his previous run-ins with the law. Scott has admitted guilt to separate misdemeanor concealed weapons charges in 1996 and 2005, and a misdemeanor disturbing-the-peace charge in 2002.

So, what does Scott's attorney have to say about the whole thing? "It'd be a shame if he loses his job at UCLA over some doo-doo like this."

Doo-doo? What is this guy, a lawyer-slash-third grade teacher?

Scott's lawyer also stated that, "From my preliminary investigation, it appears that a mistake was made by the Los Angeles Sheriff Deputies that should be cleared up within a few days."

So, just what is the mistake? The MZone has learned that Scott's attorney will explain that, with USC scooping up all the talent in SoCal, his client was merely on a recruiting visit. "You have to be pretty darn creative in order to 'get a foot in the door' (or window) as a Bruin coach going up against Pete Carroll and his team these days," he said.

On their website,UCLA.EDU they are upfront about their community..."There is no typical UCLA student or faculty member. The only common denominator is a criminal record."

You watch: this thing will escalate from a doo-doo charge to a poo-poo charge if they're not careful.

Pete the Humanitarian will step in a broker a peace settlement so long as UCLA agrees to wipe out last year's game result.

Trojan fans have to be loving this shit.

Karma's a bitch. guess that thug life was just too tempting to leave behind.

This was the same clown who wanted to get into it with Coach Norton during a recruiting visit.
ucla can't even get a background check right.

With some of the other incidents that have happened on Dorrell's watch does this constitute a lack of institutional control?
