New York Jets assistant coach Sal Alosi admitted to intentionally tripping Miami Dolphins player Nolan Carroll, who was running along the sidelines while covering a punt during Sunday's game.

"I made a mistake that showed a total lapse in judgment. My conduct was inexcusable and unsportsmanlike and does not reflect what this organization stands for," Alosi said in a statement.

"The team is reviewing the situation and is looking into the appropriate next steps," Jets public relations chief Bruce Speight said in a statement Sunday night.

The video shows Alosi leaning in and using his knee to trip Carroll, who went tumbling to the ground on a punt in the third quarter. Carroll was not injured during the play.

"I just remember running and then next thing I know I'm on the ground, 'What happened?'" Carroll said to ESPN. "I remember I split the double-team and after that couldn't tell you what happened."

The Jets lost the game 10-6.
