By Marc A. Greenberg

New York Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi, after being involved in trip-gate in which he tripped Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll during a December game at the New Meadowlands Stadium, has resigned from the Jets.

Alosi had been suspended through the completion of the team’s season.

“After speaking with Sal, he decided that it is best for him to tender his resignation at this time,” G.M. Mike Tannenbaum said in a statement released by the team. “We appreciate all of Sal’s contributions during his tenure with the team. He played an invaluable role in our success and established what we feel is one of the better strength and conditioning programs in the NFL.”
