Police arrested Randy Hanson, 44, for battery and booked him into San Luis Obispo County Jail. He has since been released on bail.
Medics treated the alleged bloody victim at the scene and sent him home.
Cal Poly hired Hanson, whose resume includes assistant coaching for three different NFL teams, in April to be the Mustangs’ defensive backs coach.
While Hanson was an assistant with the Raiders in 2009, he said Raiders head coach Tom Cable threw him from a chair in an heated argument fracturing his jaw and ruining his relationship with the Raiders franchise, Yahoo Sports said. Hanson later sued Cable, but dropped the case because of a lack of evidence.
The Mustangs’ preseason training camp start today at 3:00 pm.
