Giants Respond to Brian Flores’ Lawsuit and Bill Belichick’s Text Messages

SJ - February 3, 2022

The teams and individuals mentioned in Brian Flores' lawsuit have started to respond to his claims.  Not surprisingly they've all denied what they've been accused of.

Add the Giants to that list.  They issued a statement to the claim, based on a Bill Belichick text message, that they had already selected their head coach before interviewing Flores.


The allegation that the Giants' decision had been made prior to Friday evening, January 28, is false. And to base that allegation on a text exchange with Bill Belichick in which he ultimately states that he "thinks" Brian Daboll would get the job is irresponsible. The text exchange occurred the day before Coach Daboll's in-person interview even took place. Giants' ownership would never hire a head coach based only on a 20-minute zoom interview, which is all that Mr. Daboll had at that point.

In addition, Mr. Belichick does not speak for and has no affiliation with the Giants. Mr. Belichick's text exchange provides no insight into what actually transpired during our head coaching search.

Now how would Belichick know who the Giants were hiring before Flores was interviewed if he didn't have some inside info?  They better hope communications between Belichick and a Giants employee discussing the head coaching job don't eventually come out....
