Videos by OutKick

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Saturday they hired Brian Flores as their senior defensive assistant/linebackers coach.

“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 head coach Mike Tomlin said. “Brian’s resume speaks for itself, and I look forward to him adding his expertise to help our team.”

Flores, most recently the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, arrives in Pittsburgh with over 14 years of coaching experience in the league along with four years in a personnel role.

He was fired by the Dolphins last month after three seasons in Miami, where he led the team to a 24-25 overall record.

Earlier this month, Flores sued the NFL, the Dolphins, Denver Broncos and New York Giants in which he alleged racism in their hiring practices. 

Flores also interviewed with the Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, and Chicago Bears and was not hired.

  1. Good luck trusting this guy in your organization. If he isn’t promoted after a year or so, I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes scorched earth again. After tasting Head Coach Steak,
    he’s not humble enough to bide his time with this position. He doesn’t want Ground Beef meatball Defensive Assistant. I definitely wouldn’t tell him any strategic long terms organization plans either lol.
