NFL Investigate Illegal Trip by Jets Coach

The NFL will launch an investigation into the behavior of New York Jets assistant coach Sal Alosi, who apologized on Sunday for tripping Miami’s Nolan Carroll from the sidelines during a 10-6 loss.

Alosi, who has served on the New York staff for eight seasons, later apologized to Carroll and the Jets.

“I made a mistake that showed a total lapse in judgment. My conduct was inexcusable and unsportsmanlike and does not reflect what this organization stands for. I spoke to (Dolphins) Coach (Tony) Sparano and Nolan Carroll to apologize before they took off. I have also apologized to (Jets owner) Woody (Johnson), (GM) Mike (Tannenbaum) and (Jets coach) Rex (Ryan). I accept responsibility for my actions as well as any punishment that follows.”

League spokesman Greg Aiello told ESPN the league would review the incident. The Jets had already begun a probe into Alosi’s behavior, and there is potential for discipline.

Alosi acknowledged he could be punished when he apologized for a “total lapse in judgment.” Alosi interfered with Carroll when he appeared to stick his leg out and trip Carroll as the Miami player ran along the Jets’ sideline.
