Former Arizona Cardinals assistant strength and conditioning coach Pete Alosi has accepted the same role under Buffalo Bulls head coach Lance Leipold, according to a source.
Alosi spent seven seasons with the Cardinals, joining in 2008 as a staff assistant before becoming a full-time coach in ’10. He worked as a sports performance coach at Arizona State in ’07 and conducted off-season internships with the New York Giants in ’07 and Cleveland Browns in ’06.
Alosi, the brother of former New York Jets strength and conditioning coach and current UCLA strength and conditioning coordinator Sal Alosi, was a sports performance coach at Velocity Sports Performance from 2004–05. He got his start in coaching as a strength and conditioning intern at Hofstra in ’03.
The Massapequa, N.Y., native played linebacker at Salisbury Univeristy from 2000–02.
Alosi joins a Buffalo program that went 5–7 last year in Leipold’s debut season. Leipold had a 109–6 record in his previous job at Wisconsin-Whitewater, where he won the NCAA Division III national championship in six of his eight seasons.
