Chad Johnson was fired from the Miami Dolphins…and it was all caught on video. The footage is from HBO’s “Hard Knocks” documentary series that follows the day to day training of football players and was aired last night! Johnson tried to save his job but to no avail he was fired and he lied to his coach…he said he had never been in trouble before…he was arrested in 2000 for domestic violence.
Chad Johnson lied to his coach’s face this week in an effort to keep from being cut from the Miami Dolphins … but it didn’t work … and Chad’s humiliating termination was all caught on tape.
Johnson’s ill-fated meeting with Coach Joe Philbin was captured by the crew at “Hard Knocks” … a weekly HBO documentary series following the Dolphins which aired last night.
“Hard Knocks” cameras followed Johnson on the day after he was arrested for domestic battery … when he met with Philbin at the Miami offices … and tried to talk the Coach out of firing his ass.
During the very short meeting, Johnson told Philbin … “Coach, I’ve never been in trouble before … ever.”
As TMZ previously reported, Johnson was convicted of domestic violence back in 2000 … after slapping his then-girlfriend during an argument. Apparently, the arrest slipped his mind.
But even if Chad would have been honest with his coach, it’s highly unlikely he could’ve saved his job … Philbin made it clear the organization didn’t want to take a risk on an aging player with very little upside and a TON of risk.
