Sal Alosi Resigns From New York Jets Coaching Staff

Predictably, Sal Alosi has resigned from the New York Jets coaching staff. Alosi, the strength and conditioning coach who tripped a Miami Dolphins player during a game late in the 2010 season, had been suspended by the team after the incident.

"After speaking with Sal, he decided that it is best for him to tender his resignation at this time," said General Manager Mike Tannenbaum. "We appreciate all of Sal’s contributions during his tenure with the team. He played an invaluable role in our success and established what we feel is one of the better strength and conditioning programs in the NFL."

Alosi had been the Jets strength and conditioning coach since 2007. Are we really buying that it was Alosi's decision to leave the Jets? I really can't, since I see no way Alosi could have expected to stay with the team and have access to an NFL sideline again. So this really should come as no surprise. It seemed inevitable after the tripping incident.

"I’m thankful to have been a part of the New York Jets," said Alosi. "I am especially grateful to Mr. Johnson, Mike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan for allowing me the opportunity to be a head strength and conditioning coach in this League. I have many fond memories, including earning my first NFL job in 2002. After the events that have transpired, I feel it’s best for my family and me to look for a fresh start. I wish nothing but the best for the entire organization."
