Flores, a Boston College graduate who played football for the Eagles from 2001-2002 and was a grad assistant in 2003, went 24-25 with the Dolphins as head coach in 3 years. This included two notable streaks this year, losing 7 straight games in the beginning of the season and then following it up with a 7 game win streak to eventually bring them just 1 game back from securing a playoff spot.
BC fans often rooted for Flores as he was the only Boston College grad serving as a head coach in the NFL. Boston College fans who are also Patriots fans may have liked him a bit less for coaching a division rival, but it looks like that won’t be a worry for them anymore.
He’s already reportedly getting interest from other NFL teams with head coaching vacancies who think the Dolphins made a mistake:
Former Dolphins’ HC Brian Flores now is expected to be a prime candidate to get head coaching consideration elsewhere during this next hiring cycle, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 10, 2022
