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.
