Brian Flores is suing the NFL, but he’ll still be getting paychecks from the org. in 2022 … ’cause the ex-Miami Dolphins head coach has been hired to join the Pittsburgh Steelers coaching staff.
As we previously reported, Flores is in the middle of a messy legal battle with the NFL … claiming its hiring process is rooted in racism — even using texts from Bill Belichick to make his point.
While the 40-year-old’s priority is facing off against the league in court in hopes of bringing change, he’ll also be setting his focus on the AFC North … as Flores will be the senior defensive assistant and linebackers coach for the Stellers next season.
Mike Tomlin spoke about the hire … saying, “I am excited about Brian Flores joining our coaching staff given his history of developing and teaching defensive players during his time in the NFL.”
“Brian’s resume speaks for itself, and I look forward to him adding his expertise to help our team.”
Flores was 24-25 in his 3 seasons with the Dolphins … but many were puzzled with his firing in 2021, as it appeared he was finally hitting his stride in Miami.
