Miami Dolphins hire former FBI employee in wake of bullying scandal
The Miami Dolphins are, understandably, not interested in having another Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation, so the team has decided to make some changes in the personnel department.
According to the Miami Herald, not only have the Dolphins announced the hiring of a new human resources chief, but the team has also brought in a former FBI employee to oversee security.
On Monday, the team formally added two significant people to their front office: Joe Cicini to oversee the organization’s security efforts and Dan Caspersen to run the club’s human resources department.
Both bring sterling credentials to the franchise. Cicini joins the organization after 23 years of service in the FBI’s Miami division. His background includes work with the Joint Terrorism Task Force and he has provided crisis management training to the NFL, MLB, NBA and more.
In addition, Brandon Shore, who has worked for the Dolphins in the finance and legal affairs department will move over to HR at the team's training facility. Neither Incognito nor Martin are members of the Dolphins organization now, so the team is likely hoping this will be the final time the situation needs to be addressed.
