Miami Dolphins have fired two people in the wake of the Ted Wells report into the Richie Incognito bullying scandal, but that move has forced Jimmy Johnson to criticize the organisation.
Johnson doesn't see how former head trained O'Neil falls into of all of this mess, and he spoke candidly of his support for the man.
Via ProFootballTalk, Johnson has branded the move “Unbelievable.”
“O’Neill could not give info because of law. The BEST I ever worked with.”
Johnson claims that O'Neil's failure to report any information comes from his obligations on federal law.
“Trainers have info from Doctors that is confidential and they can not discuss,” Johnson said.
O’Neill was only dismissed by the Dolphins after it was found that he joined in the laughter resulting from the racial harassment of the assistant trainer, and the fact that he was hostile towards the investigation.
Wells 144-page report details two years of daily torment by Incognito, Mike Pouncey and John Jerry against Jonathan Martin and an assistant trainer.
This included verbal abuse, racially offensive text messages, homophobic taunting, as well as physical assault where Incognito held Martin down and punched him.
The report vindicated former Dolphin Martin's reasons for leaving the team and destroyed Incognito's already poor reputation.
