The Miami Dolphins have officially hired Brian Flores as their new head coach. He replaces Adam Gase, who was fired after the season.

Flores could not be hired by the team until after Super Bowl LIII. Once the game ended, he was officially available to be hired by the Dolphins.


The New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The Cincinnati Bengals also had to wait until Monday to hire their new head coach Zac Taylor, because he also coached in the Super Bowl with the Rams.

“Two things that stand out immediately when you meet Brian are his football intelligence and leadership skills,” Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier said. “Brian is widely respected throughout the NFL. He paid his dues in New England working in personnel, on offense, defense, and special teams, which helped him build a great understanding of what it takes to win.

“If you talk with anyone, who has played for him or worked with him, you will hear about his ability to lead and get the most out of people. Brian sets a high standard for his players and coaches and we are completely aligned with our vision on how to build a successful organization.”

The 37-year-old Brooklyn, New York native spent the 2018 season as the team’s Linebackers Coach. However, while the Patriots did not have a Defensive Coordinator since Matt Patricia left to become the Detroit Lions head coach last off-season, the Patriots gave Flores the play-calling duties despite not having the Defensive Coordinator position.

He also was the Patriots Linebackers Coach in 2016 and 2017. He was the Patriots Safeties Coach from 2012 through 2015.

In addition, he served as the Patriots Defensive Assistant in 2011. He was the Patriots Assistant Offense and Special Teams Coach in 2010.

He was the Patriots Special Teams Assistant in 2008 and 2009. He also served as the Patriots Pro Scout in 2006 and 2007.

He began his stint with the Patriots as a Scouting Assistant in 2004 and 2005.
