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.
