 LOS ANGELES (AP) -UCLA receivers coach Eric Scott will not be charged in connection with a residential burglary last month, officials said Thursday.
Prosecutors rejected the case against Scott and his cousin, Timothy Williams, because witnesses and victims were either unavailable or uncooperative, said Jane Robison, a district attorney's spokeswoman.
UCLA coach Karl Dorrell had placed the 32-year-old Scott on administrative leave.
``We will have a statement regarding Eric Scott's status at some point following a meeting between Eric, head coach Karl Dorrell and athletic administration,'' UCLA spokesman Marc Dellins said Thursday.
The meeting is expected to be held Friday.
Scott's attorney, Milton Grimes, did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
Scott, Williams and Jesus DeAlba, both 23, were arrested July 24 for investigation of residential burglary after sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a burglary in suburban Norwalk. Each of the three posted $50,000 bail.
Robison said a decision is pending on whether to charge DeAlba.
Dorrell hired Scott, a Bruins receiver in 1995-97, as an assistant on March 6. Scott spent last season as an intern in the UCLA football program. He was an assistant coach at Crenshaw High in Los Angeles the previous seven years.
