NORWALK, Calif. -- UCLA assistant football coach Eric Scott
and two other men were out on bail Wednesday after being arrested
on suspicion of residential burglary.
Bruins coach Karl Dorrell placed Scott on administrative leave.
"We will continue to gather information regarding the case and
will make a determination on Eric's status at the appropriate
time," Dorrell said in a statement.
The 32-year-old Scott, along with Jesus DeAlba and Timothy
Williams, both 23, were booked on suspicion of residential burglary
Tuesday and released after posting $50,000 bail each, said Sgt.
Tera White of the Los Angeles County sheriff's Norwalk station.
Scott was hired as receivers' coach in March after working as an
intern in the school's football office last year. He was an
assistant coach at Crenshaw High in Los Angeles the previous seven
years. Scott played at UCLA from 1995-97.
Deputies were called to the 11600 block of Pioneer Boulevard on
a report that a burglary was in progress. They detained the three
men and arrested them, White said.
