INDIANAPOLIS - The Miami Dolphins’ locker-room bullying scandal was all Joe Philbin’s fault.

The head coach said so himself Thursday morning, to kick off a dizzying day of coach, GM and prospect interviews at the NFL scouting combine.

But unlike his offensive line coach, the team’s trainer and perhaps all three bullies involved in the incident, Philbin is keeping his job.

Nice how that worked out, huh?

“I’m the head football coach, so the team, the performance of the team, the record, the 8-8 record — that falls on my shoulders,” Philbin told reporters.

“I want everybody to know I am the one who is responsible for the workplace environment at the Miami Dolphins’ facility … So I’m going to be more vigilant, I’m going to be more visible, and I’m going to have a better pulse (of the team).”
