FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Just two days after he was suspended for the rest of the season, the New York Jets have now suspended strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi indefinitely after new developments in his tripping case.
It was discovered by the team that Alosi told players to stand in a wall along the sidelines, especially during punts, forcing the "gunner" to go around them.
On one of those plays, Alosi, who was initially suspended for the rest of the season and fined $25,000 on Monday, stuck out his knee and tripped Miami cornerback Nolan Carroll.
After meeting with the players involved to confirm the findings, the indefinite suspension was implemented and the club has not ruled out the possibility of firing Alosi.
"Once we got this new information, we actually met with the Commissioner [Roger Goodell] and [vice president of football operations] Ray Anderson this morning," said New York general manager Mike Tannenbaum. "They support this initial decision that we presented to them, but the league is going to look into this as well, as they should. Once we get all the information, we'll make a final determination, but based on this information, Sal has been suspended indefinitely."
Alosi is in his fourth season as the team's head strength and conditioning coach. He was also an assistant in the department from 2002-05.
