Sal Alosi resigns from Jets

Sal Alosi created one of the bigger rulebook stirs in the 2010 season during "TripGate," when he and other members of the Jets coaching staff lined up and took out Miami CB Nolan Carroll in a game against the Dolphins.

Alosi was suspended without pay for the remainder of the 2010 season, and now he's resigned, the team announced on Monday afternoon.

"I'm thankful to have been part of the Jets," Alosi said in a statement released by the team. "After the events that have transpired, I feel it's best best for my family & me to look for a fresh start."

Alosi's "resignation" will likely be painted as conveniently timed -- the Jets clearly can't afford to have him on staff even if he's a hard-working, team-first kind of guy. He just brings too much baggage and opens the Jets up to too much scrutiny.

It also stands to reason that Alosi might receive a decent severance package in exchange for keeping quiet as he moved forward, although it's reasonable to assume the Jets won't actually announce that.

Regardless, though, a quick and quiet (the news came a few short minutes before Troy Polamalu was announced as the DPOY) divorce was the easiest way to move on for both sides.
