Sal Alosi, the former New York Jets assistant coach who resigned last year after tripping an opposing player on the sideline, has been hired by UCLA as its strength and conditioning coordinator.
Rex Ryan hasn’t guaranteed this win, there’s no indication whether it’s “personal,” and we’re not sure if Bart Scott “can’t wait!” for the awards ceremony. What we do know is the Jets have been nominated for the SportsBusiness Journal’s Team of the Year award.
Bill Hughan has been hired as the Jets’ strength and conditioning coach, replacing Sal Alosi. Hughan joins the Jets after three seasons as the assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Falcons.

The New York Jets are appealing the $100,000 fine issued by the NFL last week for violating league rules when assistant coach Sal Alosi ordered players to form a sideline wall, then tripped Miami’s Nolan Carroll during a punt return last month.

The Jets trainer who tripped a Miami Dolphins player on the sideline during a game Sunday says he “wasn’t thinking” when he did it, and has not yet received any discipline from the team or the NFL.
Rex Ryan has spent a lot of his time saying the Jets are coming, that one day they will meet President Obama at the White House. He’s even gone so far as to say it would happen this season. Shame on Jets fans for buying into that nonsense.
