Johnny Manziel lost his job as starting quarterback of the Cleveland Browns because he lied to the coaching staff about when a video of him partying in Austin was recorded.

Manziel's account to the Browns was earlier reported by Fox Sports.

According to a league source, Manziel lied directly to coach Mike Pettine about when the video was filmed. He also encouraged his friends to lie about when the video was recorded, according to the Fox Sports report.

Manziel might have kept his job had he told the truth.
