Dolphins expected to hire Patriots' Brian Flores as HC

He's well liked, worked his way up through the ranks. But this feels way too early for him, considering his biggest roles have come in a defense which has sucked in the main. Perhaps this is a 'leader of men' Vrabel-esque hire and he's able to bring in good coordinators. But I'd be interested to know who those people would be. 

Yah it feels too early for him to be a HC to me. But hopefully he gets a veteran staff and learns from them. One of the mistakes Gase made is that he had coordinators learning on the job with him.

Rumor is Jim Caldwell will be the OC. If that's the case, I really hope we don't look at Flacco.

I'm not sure, but I think the Dolphins may be the only team with a black HC and GM now. Not that it totally matters. 

Maybe this will finally shut up Stephen A, but i doubt it.

Veteran hires are key, I just can't think of anyone left out there who would be a) good and b) would want to work under a rookie HC in Miami.

Strange hire, if it goes through. I mean, he's got one season as a coordinator, and while the NE defense was decent statistically, it's not like he produced a world class unit out there.

Will miss him though - no matter what, he'll always have place in NE hearts as the guy who shouts "Malcolm GO!" just before the goal-line INT in SB49.

He's been our de facto defensive coordinator this year. Players love him and said that his teaching has helped them play faster and with more confidence. While the unit had its ups and downs, overall we saw an increase in pressure and in the secondary's performance. Arizona interviewed him last year for a HC position, so he's been on the national radar for a while even if the media isn't as aware of his presence. Seems like a good guy, although I obviously don't wish him success. :)

Kris Richard was looking to be the best case scenario. This hire is downright sad.

  • It didn't work, and now he hates the coach too :(
  • Fire Coach during the season year 2, year 3 if they had a signature win during a 4 game winning streak year 1.

Dolphins always seem to go against the grain and suddenly you think maybe they know something we don't and they've finally turned the corner. And then the results come in, you realize these are the Dolphins were talking about and they still don't know wtf they are doing. Not impressed whatsoever. We'll see.

Embrace it, my dude. Embrace the ride of not having a clue which way you're going.

NFL Network and ESPN past two days non stop throwing a fit no minority head coach was hired yet and “this puts a ton of pressure on the Dolphins”. Wonder if that’s really what happened?

Anyways, it’s a better hiring than Patricia and I actually like Flores. He’s not a x’s and o’s guys but seems to have great leadership. It’ll all depend on his coordinators, more than any other coach. Probably my third favorite hire after Arians and Gase.

It'd be the most Dolphins thing ever to hire Flores the day after his D gets trounced by the Chargers so that's what I am expecting.
