In February of 2019 Brian Flores was hired to be the Head Coach of the Miami Dolphins. Flores served as the defensive coordinator for the Patriots during the 2018-19 season before being hired by Miami. Flores spent three seasons with the Dolphins going 24-25, and lead them to consecutive winning seasons for the first time since they made it to the playoffs seven years in a row from 1997-2003. This firing by Miami came as a shock to many including myself, because many people believed that Flores established a winning culture with the Dolphins even though he missed the playoffs each year. In his first year with the team Flores went 5-11 and the Dolphins did better than many people thought they would, especially with the poor roster they had. In his second season the Dolphins went 10-6 but missed out on the playoffs after losing in their season finale last year. The Dolphins started this season 1-7 but went on a 7 game winning streak and won 8 out of their last 9 games to finish 9-8 on the year. Unfortunately for them, they were eliminated from the postseason after their week 17 loss to the Titans. The Dolphins did however sweep Bill Belichick and the Patriots this season which is not an easy thing to accomplish.

I believe Brian Flores will get another head coaching opportunity immediately because of the job he did with the Dolphins. The Broncos, Vikings, Bears, and Jaguars are a couple of teams who have head coaching vacancies, and I’m sure Brian Flores will be high on their list of coaches they’re considering.
