Jets have been informed on the NFL rule

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin has been the  talk of the town when he was fined 100k for being on the white line and interfering with the officials .

1st year special teams coordinator Ben Kotwica said that he is always informed on the rule even before the Mike Tomlin incident.

“The league contacted us as a warning.” Kotwica said. “I’m aware of the rule and the team is too, but I don’t think it is going to be an issue for us.”

A reporter asked Ben if there is anyone warning them on the sidelines. “There’s a handful of get back coaches.”

The Jets coaching staff clearly experienced this rule earlier in the season and was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for being on the white line, however the penalty and repercussions were significantly different than the one Mike Tomlin received.
