Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill called out an unspecified Cincinnati Bengals coach for disrespecting him during the Week 4 game.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill called out an unspecified Cincinnati Bengals coach for disrespecting him during the Week 4 game, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Harold.
Jackson wrote, “Tyreek Hill was unhappy with an unspecified Bengals coach who spoke to him in objectionable way. Hill declined to say what was said, but told CBS-4 and others that ‘whatever coach that is, I’m going to find you and have a… conversation. I felt disrespected as a man.’”
Hill also reportedly stated he was “going to find” the coach who spoke poorly about him, according to NBC Sports.
Hill has a history of publicly getting himself into trouble, so the situation doesn’t necessarily come as a shock. Though his words were a bit extreme, it’s unknown what the coach said and what nature the coach’s words were.
Regardless, Hill’s rivalry with the Bengals is undoubtedly heating up.
Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill’s rivalry with the Bengals is heating up
Hill had a former rivalry with the Bengals last season that is only seeming to move forward through this season. Going into the game against Cincinnati in Week 4, he said he “couldn’t wait” to go against Eli Apple.
Last season, Hill played with the Kansas City Chiefs and lost the AFC Championship game 27-24 against the Bengals. Apple tackled Hill just short of the end zone, costing him a touchdown, which is likely what Hill was referencing. He lost yet again to the Bengals, which is the Dolphins first loss this season.
Tua Tagovailoa was also taken out of the game after suffering a scary medical episode. Hill spoke on the player who sacked Tagovailoa, but he had much kinder words. He stated, “The Bengal player who made the sack, he wasn’t trying to do anything dirty, he was just playing ball.”
The season has just begun, and it’ll clearly be an eventful one.
