MIAMI (AP) - Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner and longtime head athletic trainer Kevin O'Neill have been fired for their roles in the team's bullying scandal.
The firings Wednesday were the first punitive steps taken by the Dolphins since a report on the NFL's investigation into the scandal was released last week.
Investigators found that guard Richie Incognito and two teammates engaged in a pattern of harassment directed at tackle Jonathan Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer. Martin left the team at midseason, and Incognito was suspended.
In a news release, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said Turner and O'Neill ''both exhibited poor judgment at times.'' Turner took part in some of the taunting, the NFL report said.
