INDIANAPOLIS -- Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin did not duck questions regarding Richie Incognito, Jonathan Martin and the bullying incident that has swirled around his team:

“I want everyone to know that I am responsible for the workplace environment of the Miami Dolphins,” Philbin said at the outset of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

“I can tell you, we’re going to do things about it. We’re going to make it better…We’re going to have a better workplace. I can promise you that.”

The Dolphins suspended Incognito because of the well-publicized situation, and this week fired head trainer Kevin O’Neill and offensive line coach Jim Turner after release of the report on the investigation by Ted Wells on workplace harassment.

Philbin sought to establish that he will attempt to prevent similar situations in the future.
