Dolphins expected to announce Patriots DC Brian Flores as their head coach today. Coming into the offseason, I wanted Miami to retain Gase, then I favored Kris Richard. Flores seemed like a relative unknown, a guy that didn’t seem like he was ready to be a head coach after one season of being New England’s DC. Boy, did his stock explode during the playoffs. Have to wonder if all coaches weren’t allowed to be hired until after the Super Bowl, where Flores would rank. It’s hard to isolate Flores from Belichick since we all know Belichick is very hands on with the game planning on defense, but ultimately Flores is the guy pulling the trigger on game day, and he painted a masterpiece against the NFL’s offensive golden boy on the biggest stage possible.
