Joe Philbin takes responsibility for Dolphins locker room fiasco

The 2014 NFL Scouting Combine is underway in Indianapolis, and head coaches from around the league are speaking with the media as they take the podium prior to player workouts on the Lucas Oil Stadium turf.

One of the most anticipated appearances was from Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin, who opened up about the fiasco inside of the team’s locker room that caused Jonathan Martin to leave the team after bullying and harassment from Richie Incognito, Mike Pouncey and John Jerry.

Philbin opened up his press conference with a statement where he accepted responsibility for what went down.

“I want everybody to know, I’m the one responsible for the workplace environment at the Miami Dolphins,” Philbin said. “We’re going to have a better workplace, I promise you that.”

Philbin also said that no decisions have been made on the future of the players implicated in the Ted Wells Report.

It is more important than ever for Philbin to start taking responsibility and show that he is capable of bringing order to the Dolphins locker room or else he could find himself in the unemployment line by the end of the season.
