MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins announced today that Head
Coach Brian Flores has been relieved on his duties. Flores completed
his third season as head coach with a 24-25 record.
“I made a decision today to part ways with Brian Flores,” said Miami
Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross. “After evaluating where we are as an
organization and what we need going forward to improve, I determined
that key dynamics of our football organization weren’t functioning at
a level I want it to be and felt that this decision was in the best
interest of the Miami Dolphins. I believe we have a talented young
roster in place and have the opportunity to be much better in 2022. I
want to thank Brian for his hard work and wish him nothing but the
best in his future.”
Flores was named the 13th head coach in team history on Feb. 4, 2019.
He began his coaching career as a special teams assistant for New
England from 2008-09. In 2010, Flores served as an offensive assistant
and worked with special teams. He spent his final eight seasons
(2011-18) in New England coaching defense.
