Brian Flores Gets Job as Steelers Linebackers Coach Amid NFL Lawsuit

Brian Flores has his next job. The Steelers named the former Dolphins coach as a senior defensive assistant and linebackers coach on Saturday afternoon. Flores, who was fired by Miami following the season, is suing all 32 NFL teams for discriminatory hiring practices after being passed up for head coaching jobs this offseason, including by the Giants. “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,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said in a release. “Brian’s resume speaks for itself and I look forward to adding his expertise to help our team.”

Shocking. But good job by Mike Tomlin and the Steelers to give Flores a chance when nobody thought he could ever work in the NFL again.
