A Miami Dolphins coach was overheard saying the Richie Incognito bullying scandal has been overblown, reports the Miami Herald.

Controversy has rung round the NFL after Incognito was accused of bullying and intimidating team mate Jonathan Martin over an extended period of time.

Martin has since left the team because of the incessant hazing from Incognito whilst the player himself has been suspended indefinitely from the team.

The comments come in stark contrast to that of Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who in a recent statement outlined the importance of getting to the bottom of the issue and making sure nothing similar ever occurs.

Ross has announced his intention to form two committees to underline what it was that caused the hazing culture and what needs to be done to change it.

But apparently one Miami coach doesn't see it as a big issue, insisting the story has grown much bigger than it needed to.

According to the Florida publication, an unnamed coach was heard saying outside the team's training facility: “This is the most overblown story.

“Everybody knows Richie [Incognito] has a past.”
