Sal Alosi Resigns


Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi has resigned after a season of turmoil in which he was caught tripping Nolan Carroll of the Miami Dolphins.

"I’m thankful to have been a part of the New York Jets," Alosi said in the statement. "I am especially grateful to Mr. Johnson, Mike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan for allowing me the opportunity to be a head strength and conditioning coach in this League. I have many fond memories, including earning my first NFL job in 2002. After the events that have transpired, I feel it’s best for my family and me to look for a fresh start. I wish nothing but the best for the entire organization."

I'm sorry, but I just cannot feel badly for him. He had a dream job and partook in reckless actions that could have injured a player. Plenty of guys who would behave as model citizens would give anything to get a job in the league. If you are an NFL strength and conditioning coach, people will probably only know your name if you have really messed something up. Alosi did that. This is probably for the best.
