Earlier this week, UCLA strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was involved in an altercation with rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs that resulted in the hip-hop star being arrested. Now, reports are emerging that Alosi previously had an altercation with New York Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis as well.
Per TMZ Sports, Revis and Alosi—who was the strength and conditioning coach with the Jets at the time—got into a fight in 2010:
TMZ Sports has obtained a letter from a female chiropractor sent to Jets brass in 2010 ... raising serious concerns about strength and conditioning coach Alosi. According to the chiropractor, Alosi got into a "fistfight" with Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis. The doctor added Alosi has a pattern of abusive behavior and the Jets needed to get him under control.
The report added: "The chiropractor also complained Alosi verbally abused and humiliated her, even trying to prohibit her from treating players because he was pissed off over petty issues involving towels and water."
A former player with the team "confirmed the validity of the story," per Charles Curtis of NJ.com, who also reported that the letter was sent to Combs and could be used in his legal defense against Alosi. Combs was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery and posted a $50,000 bail.
Alosi's recent infamy isn't his only moment in the public eye, however, as he also tripped then-Miami Dolphins player Nolan Carroll on the sideline in a 2010 game. He was suspended for the rest of that season and fined $25,000 by the Jets.
The next step in this story, of course, will be whether Revis publicly verifies this story, publicly refutes it or chooses to remain quiet on the matter. Combs' legal team, meanwhile, may try to use Alosi's past against him to support the rapper's claim that he was acting in self-defense and didn't initiate the incident with the coach.
