Jets Suspend Sal Alosi Indefinitely

After receiving a suspension for the rest of the season, Sal Alosi appeared to survive the worst of his punishment.

However, on Wednesday, the Jets strength and conditioning coach was suspended indefinitely by the team after admitting to telling five inactive players to form a wall along the Jet sideline prior to his trip of Miami Dolphin special teamer Nolan Carroll.

Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum offered clarity on the situation during a conference call from the NFL owners meetings in Dallas.

“As we continued our investigation, we discovered some new information,” said Tannenbaum.

He went on to explain that “the players at the Miami game were instructed by Sal to stand where they were to force the gunner in the game to run around them.”

Former Dolphins linebacker Zach Thomas suggested this notion earlier in the week and Alosi, who failed to volunteer this information immediately, should lose his job for not only tripping a player but now, lying to his employer.

  1. I find that the IQ on this coach must be fairly low. Let’s see… the game is televised… there are cameras everywhere… chances are 100% that the incident will be caught on tape… the trip looks calculated… Seriously, the guy should just be fired because this kind of thing is just a black eye on the game. The inactive players should also be fined and suspended for listing to the head case coach.
