Mike Tuiasosopo has been hired as UCLA’s linebacker coach, completing the staff for Coach Jim Mora.
Tuiasosopo was the defensive line coach at Colorado in 2011 and 2012.
He had the same role at Arizona from 2004 to 2010. He has also coached at Utah, Nevada and Utah State.
His expertise at coaching pass rushers made him appealing to Mora.
Tuiasosopo, who will also oversee the special teams, has strong ties in Southern California recruiting circles, having played at Wilmington Banning High.
