There’s a chance that Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi may not be back with the team at all, as the team has suspended him indefinitely. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the suspension comes after the team found out that he instructed players to form a wall on sidelines. Of course everyone knows what happened, as Alosi, trying to be a hero for some reason, decided to put his knee out, knocking down and hurting Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll.
Rich Cimini of ESPN reports the following on the incident.
Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum announced the punishment after Alosi was suspended for the rest of the season and fined $25,000 on Monday.
“Over the last day as we continued our investigation we discovered some new information,” Tannenbaum said. “The players at the Miami game were instructed by Sal to stand where they were forcing the gunner in the game to run around them. Based on that new information we’ve suspended Sal indefinitely, pending further review.
Tannenbaum said that as soon as the team learned the new information, the Jets contacted NFL vice president of football operations Ray Anderson.
“They support this initial decision that we presented to them,” Tannenbaum said. “The league is going to look into this as well, as well they should. Once we get all the information we’ll make a final determination.”
Here’s a bet that Alosi never shows his face on the Jets sideline again.
