Before coming to Michigan, Tuioti spent two seasons (2014-15) with the Cleveland Browns as the defensive quality control coach.
Tuioti, prior to joining the Browns, spent six seasons with Hawaii. He has been the linebackers coach (2012-13), defensive tackles coach (2010-11), and director of player personnel (2008-09). He also was the lead recruiter for the Rainbow Warriors.
From 2003-05, Tuioti was the head coach at Kalaheo High School in Hawaii. He moved on to be the defensive coordinator at Silverado High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. He led the team to a 10-1 recording during the 2007 season.
Tuioti attended Hawaii and worked as a graduate assistant coach. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Hawaii in 2000.
The director of player personnel is the second Michigan staffer to leave the program after offensive analyst Jimmie Dougherty moved to Oregon to be the wide receivers coach for the Ducks under Willie Taggart.
