LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Six UCLA football players have been suspended for the team’s season-opener against Cincinnati Saturday at the Rose Bowl.
The school announced Monday in a news release that tight end Devin Asiasi, running back Soso Jamabo, defensive tackle Osa Odighizuwa, defensive back Mo Osling, defensive lineman Moses Robinson-Carr and center Boss Tagaloa had been suspended for “violations of Athletic Department policies.”
The school did not elaborate on what behavior prompted the suspensions.
Saturday will be Chip Kelly’s first game coaching the Bruins, who signed the former Oregon and NFL head coach to a five-year, $23 million contract last November. He was brought in to replace the fired Jim Mora.
“If you do something wrong, there’s a punishment that’s involved in it,” Kelly told reporters Saturday.
Asiasi, Jamabo and Tagaloa are facing multi-game suspensions, Kelly confirmed. He could not say how many games the trio would miss.
