Report: Joe Philbin fought to get fired OL coach two years severance
Though Jim Turner was fired as Dolphins offensive line coach, he got a pretty decent going-away gift.
According to the Palm Beach Post, Miami head coach Joe Philbin fought with team ownership to get Turner two years of severance pay. This news came despite the fact the recently-released Ted Wells report noted that Turner had participated in poking fun at at least one of his young linemen and buying him a male blowup doll as a joke.
According to the PBP's Andrew Abramson, various team officials also view former trainer Kevin O'Neill, who was fired this week as well, as a scapegoat.
Here's another interesting twist to the Incognito-Martin saga: remember that the whole storyline began when Jonathan Martin stormed out of the building in late October when the offensive line pulled a prank on him by inviting him to a lunch table before standing up as a unit and leaving just as Martin sat down?
Well, reportedly that gag was so prevalent on the team that it was also pulled on Philbin. With Martin himself participating in the prank.
