Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi – who made just a little bit of news Sunday by tripping Dolphins CB Nolan Carroll – did not offer his resignation today, but at a news conference in New York, he apologized profusely and said he would accept any punishment coming his way.
The Jets have spoken.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jets have suspended Alosi for the rest of the season, including the playoffs, and have fined him $25,000. The team hasn’t made a decision if Alosi will be on the sideline in 2011.
It’s a fair punishment, as far as I’m concerned. Alosi didn’t deserve to be fired for his idiotic display, but he also deserved a hefty suspension and fine. Which is what he got.
"We felt it was appropriate for us to hold him accountable,” GM Mike Tannenbaum said, via Newsday’s Bob Glauber. “At the end of the day, this was our punishment."
