Jets Strength Coach Sal Alosi Resigns

The Jets have accepted the resignation of suspended strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi, effective immediately.

Alosi tripped Miami Dolphins rookie cornerback Nolan Carroll by sticking out his knee on the sideline. He also organized illegal sideline walls, encouraging players to get in the way of opposing gunners on punts.

“After speaking with Sal, he decided that it is best for him to tender his resignation at this time,” Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said. “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 was fined $25,000. And the Jets were fined $100,000 for his actions as well as their comments accusing the New England Patriots of forming sideline walls.

It was later proven by video obtained by FOX Sports that the Patriots did break the rules.

Named head strength and conditioning coach in 2007, Alosi ends his second stint with the Jets after serving as the team’s assistant strength and conditioning coach from 2002-05. He spent the 2006 season as the head strength and conditioning coach for the Atlanta Falcons. Alosi played college football at Hofstra from 1996-2000 and served as the school’s assistant strength and conditioning coach in 2001.
