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.
This is the first time we heard of this incident prior to the TMZ report
. This has prettymuch slip under the radar because Johnson rebuild his image especially in recent years with appearances on ABC’s Dancing with The Stars and a reality TV series trying to find a “good woman” wife material.
