SJ - February 1, 2022

Former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores sued the NFL, the Giants, the Dolphins and the Broncos on Tuesday.  He alleges in the suit that there is racism in the league's hiring practices.

Flores says in the suit that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offered him money to lose games and that Bill Belichick texted him prior to his interview with the Giants telling him New York had already picked Brian Daboll for the job.

Flores' firing after turning around the Dolphins' season was surprising to say the least.  He is one season removed from a 10-6 record and despite a really bad start to the 2021 season finished 9-8.

Being offered money to lose games and interviews for jobs that he has no shot to be hired for are as bad as it gets.  The NFL is going to want to sweep this under the rug and quickly.

I don't know if the league's hiring practices are racist, but I do know that Flores should absolutely be a head coach in the NFL.
