Tuiasasopo comes from some good bloodlines. His brother Navy played for the Rams and he is the cousin of former NFL players Bob Apisa and Manu Tuiasasopo.
He was a first-team all-Columbia Conference selection at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. He was the team defensive MVP in 1998 a year after the school won the NAIA Division II National Championship.
A source inside the Utah football office confirmed that he interviewed this weekend and it is believed that he was on campus and attended the Arizona/Stanford basketball game. That same source could not confirm or deny that Tuiasasopo had accepted a post on the Wildcat staff.
No official word has come from the University on his or any other coach's hiring.
What exactly Tuiasasopo will coach is still up in the air. Tom Kish was expected to coach the defensive line, but as of now the Cats don't have a linebackers coach.
