Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson gets cut from the Miami Dolphins on ‘Hard Knocks’

Chad Johnson’s public humiliation hasn’t come to an end just yet.

After his recent stint in the joint following a domestic dispute during which he allegedly headbutted his new bride Evelyn Lozada, things only got worse. The following day, Johnson’s downward spiral continued in the office of Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin.

The HBO documentary series “Hard Knocks,” which chronicles the team, had its cameras rolling when Johnson showed up to Philbin’s office in an attempt to save his job. He desperately scrambled to apologize for embarrassing the team (understatement of the year) and even resorted to lying to Philbin.

“Coach, I’ve never been in trouble before. Ever,” Johnson fibbed.

The trouble with that statement is that Ochocinco has been in trouble before. In fact, the exact same kind of trouble. As TMZ reports, he was arrested and convicted of domestic violence in 2001 after slapping his former girlfriend across the face.

However, it seems like Philbin already had his mind made up about Johnson before he even arrived. At the beginning of a clip, he can be heard on a phone conversation lamenting Johnson’s unfavorable tweeting habits and his F-bomb melt down at a press conference. 

“I just think it’s best for both us that we just kind of part ways at this point in time,” Philbin told Johnson.

Wife-less, team-less — where will Ochocinco go from here?
