DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Dolphins harassment scandal is threatening the season and job security, leaving the future of coach Joe Philbin, his assistants and general manager Jeff Ireland in doubt.

Tackle Jonathan Martin alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including guard Richie Incognito, who has been suspended. While Martin is scheduled to meet with an NFL special investigator late this week, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has formed two committees to study the team's locker room culture.

Someone in the organization will likely be designated the primary culprit for the scandal, and Ireland's the early front-runner. Ross says he has "total, utmost confidence" in Philbin but has barely mentioned Ireland.
