The New York Jets on Wednesday announced they have suspended strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi "indefinitely'' after they learned he had instructed the non-uniformed players to form a human wall on the sideline during Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, the New York Post reported.
Alosi was suspended for the remainder of this year because he stuck his knee out and tripped Dolphins rookie Nolan Carroll. Carroll stayed down on the field for several minutes after the play, but was not injured. and later returned to the game.
After further internal investigation, the Jets said they uncovered new information that Alosi had told the inactive players standing near him to form the wall, according to the Post.
The Jets, according to GM Mike Tannenbaum, alerted the league of this and extended Alosi's suspension indefinitely. Asked if Alosi might be fired, Tannenbaum said, "All options are on the table.''
