New York Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi has been suspended for the rest of the season and post-season without pay according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.
Alosi gained national attention when he tripped Jets player Nolan Carroll while running down the sideline, leading SB Nation New York’s Joe Caporoso to write the following:
There is no “saving face” on this issue. There is only doing the right thing, which is firing Alosi. There is no room in football for his actions and he is lucky he didn’t seriously hurt Nolan Carroll of the Miami Dolphins.
There are plenty of times it is embarrassing to support the Jets but few things in recent memory would be more embarrassing than if the Jets let Alosi get away with this type of behavior. This is basically unprecedented because what coach would be stupid enough to do something like this, clearly a Jets coach on Rex Ryan’s staff was.
Reports have also surfaced that the NFL will fine Alosi $25,000.
