So the LA Times has a little story on Karl Dorrell's latest hire for his coaching staff - John Wristen:
Wristen, 43, has 16 years of college coaching experience, including the last seven as an assistant at Colorado.
"John has a great track record with tight ends and special teams and has great experience with our offense," UCLA Coach Karl Dorrell said
Wristen swatted his 4-year-old son's thigh and elbowed the child in the chest area, according to a police report. He then put his wife in a headlock as she tried to leave, according to the report.
Police arrested Wristen on suspicion of four misdemeanor charges: harassment, child abuse, false imprisonment and third-degree assault. In a deal with prosecutors, Wristen pleaded guilty to the assault charges, according to court records.
He was ordered to take parenting classes and receive domestic-violence counseling, the records show.
So let me get this straight - a wife beater/child abuser is now roaming as a football coach in Westwood at UCLA under the eyes of Athletic Director Dan Guerrero and Karl Dorrell - individuals who have spewed so much BS in the past about building a clean/classy program in the mold of Stanford. What we have have instead a program buing in built in the mold of USC, Miami, and Tennessee - programs who have deplorable character/issues off the field. Nice job Karl Dorrell and Dan Guerrerro. Way to make Bruins proud.
