Jets Name Strength Coach After Alosi Resigns for Tripping Opposing Player

The New York Jets named Bill Hughan strength and conditioning coach to succeed Sal Alosi, who resigned after tripping an opposing player during a game.

Hughan was the assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Atlanta Falcons the past three seasons and served in the same capacity with the Oakland Raiders for the previous four years.

Alosi quit on Jan. 31, seven weeks after he tripped Nolan Carroll of the Miami Dolphins as the rookie cornerback ran along the Jets’ sideline on punt coverage. Alosi was fined $25,000 and indefinitely suspended.

Bryan Dermody will remain the National Football League team’s assistant strength and conditioning coach, the Jets said in a news release. Financial terms of Hughan’s hiring weren’t disclosed.
