TripGate instigator, Alosi, gets new job

Alosi

By Josh Katzowitz

You might recall the tiny uproar created last year when former Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi stuck out his leg and tripped Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll on the sideline during a Miami punt.

He was suspended immediately, fined $25,000 by the Jets (who were fined $100,000 by the league), and Alosi resigned after the 2010 season was complete.

Now, he’s got another job, as UCLA announced that new coach Jim Mora Jr., has hired Alosi as the school’s strength and conditioning coach.

"These coaches are all important elements to us moving our program forward," Mora, who also hired a new receivers coach, said in a statement. "We welcome them, as coaches and teachers on and off the field, to the UCLA football family."

First rule that Alosi the teacher should impart to his new charges. No tripping!!!  We hear that gets people in trouble.

That "no tripping" rule has a different meaning in California.  

This is another good move by Mora.  Alosi didn't deserve to be fired in the first place, but he was a sacrifice to the media to keep them from unleashing the full fury of the New York tabloid-style media on the Jets.  The fine should have been enough, especially since Carroll wasn't injured on the play.  

Besides, the Jets went from 11-5 in 2010 to 8-8 this season.  Maybe the firing contributed to the Jets' decline.
