Hire the best leader for today’s generation.
That was the impetus to the Miami Dolphins’ hiring of Brian Flores as their new coach earlier this year, which bucked NFL trends by at least two counts. Flores was the only African-American hired for any of the eight head coaching vacancies, and the former Patriots linebackers coach is the only new coach who didn’t ascend from a role as perceived offensive whiz/quarterback whisperer.
“I was looking for the best leader,” Dolphins GM Chris Grier said on Monday night during a general manager panel discussion that kicked off a two-day NFL coaching summit.
