Sal Alosi: Jets’ Assistant Apologizes for Tripping Dolphins Player

December 14th, 2010 by Staff – Sal Alosi, a New York Jets assistant coach, has apologized for dripping a Miami Dolphins player during Sunday’s game at the New Meadowlands.

Alosi, who is in his fourth season as the team’s head strength and conditioning coach, committed one of the most unsportsmanlike acts in recent memory.

While standing with a number of Jets assistant coaches on the sideline, Alosi was caught on camera sticking his knee out to trip Miami’s Nolan Carroll, who was running downfield to cover a punt.

After taking a tumble, Carroll remained on the turf before being helped off the field.

Although it appeared he might have sustained an injury, he was able to return to the game after a short rest.

Following the Dolphins’ 10-6 win over the Jets, Miami players called for a fine and suspension once they learned the trip was intentional.

Despite issuing an apology, Alosi is likely to face discipline from the NFL as the incident goes under investigation.

The Jets also may face a hefty fine from the league.
