Richie IncognitoDAVIE, Fla. — Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin confirmed that suspended guard Richie Incognito was investigated last year for allegedly molesting a female volunteer at the team’s golf tournament.

“That incident occurred a year and a half ago,” Philbin said Saturday. “We were made aware of the incident and we took immediate action.”

Philbin declined to elaborate on what kind of actions were taken against Incognito. Philbin also did not reveal whether the NFL was alerted.

Incognito played all 16 games in 2012 and was eventually voted onto Miami’s leadership counsel by his teammates in 2013.
