Brian Flores is ready to bring his leadership to the Miami Dolphins

After winning another Super Bowl with the New England Patriots, Flores is ready to take the headcoaching spotlight

What Brian Flores did to the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII was tantamount to acing a final job interview. And although Flores, the New England Patriots’ defensive playcaller, had already done more than enough to become a head coach, his closing act with the Patriots should impress any prospective employer.

The man expected to lead the Dolphins doesn’t look anything like Rams offensive whiz Sean McVay. While most teams that had openings were obsessed with finding the next McVay, the Dolphins took a road less traveled these days, focusing on a defensive-minded coach of color. And how he fares could make ripple effects across the league on other coaches of color getting the top job.
