The Miami Dolphins have fired head coach Brian Flores on Monday. He was let go after three seasons in the role.
Owner Stephen Ross said that Flores was fired due to “the culture off the field.”
The 40-year-old went 24-25 in the aforementioned three seasons. In his final two seasons with the team, the Dolphins went 19-14.
“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 the 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 will undoubtedly receive another head coaching opportunity. He is expected to be a prime candidate for several head coaching jobs in this cycle.
Ross is a Michigan alumnus. He has downplayed interest in current Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh, who is already being mentioned for head coaching jobs with the Chicago Bears and the Las Vegas Raiders.
This past season, Flores guided the Dolphins to an 9-8 record. The Dolphins became the first team in NFL history to lose seven straight games at a point in a season then to rebound with seven straight wins.
“I am grateful most of all for the players, coaches, and support staff who gave everything they had on a daily basis to help us win games,” Flores said. “They deserve the credit for any success on the field, and it was the honor of a lifetime for me to go to work with them every day. I have always believed that leadership is really about service, and I did my best to serve the players, the staff, and the organization every day. I believe in this team and will always value the relationships my family and I made here.”
