Sal Alosi Now Suspended Indefinitely After Jets Find 'New Information'
"Over the last day as we continued our investigation we discovered some new information," Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said. "The players at the Miami game were instructed by Sal to stand where they were forcing the gunner in the game to run around them. Based on that new information we've suspended Sal indefinitely, pending further review.
"Specifically when Miami was punting they were asked to stand there by him," he said.
Alosi was originally suspended for the season and forced to pay a $25,000 fine. Tannenbaum, who said Alosi acted completely alone in the decision, left the door open for the team to possibly fire him down the line.
"All options are certainly on the table we're going to complete the review and get all the information," Tannenbaum said. "[Special teams coach] Mike Westhoff was not involved, Rex Ryan was not involved, but we just want to be thorough and get all the information."
Tannenbaum said the team informed the league right away once discovering the "new information," and that the league agrees with the Jets' decision and is looking into the matter as well.
There's been discussion of late as to whether the Jets intentionally employ tactics designed to interfere with gunners on special teams. Alosi originally denied that the players forming a wall had been instructed to do so by anyone.
