Former Miami Dolphins Coach Brian Flores Sues NFL

In a lengthy lawsuit, Brian Flores has filed a class-action lawsuit against the NFL and three teams — the Dolphins, the Broncos and the Giants — alleging they have engaged in racist and discriminatory practices against Black coaches. Allegations in the suit include Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offering to pay Flores an extra $100,000 per loss during the 2019 season, and Ross trying to get him to recruit “a prominent quarterback” who was under contract to another team, violating tampering rules.

The lawsuit also says the Giants scheduled a fake interview with Flores last week to comply with the Rooney Rule, and that Flores learned that his interview was fake because his former boss, Patriots coach Bill Belichick, mistakenly texted him a congratulatory message, thinking that the Giants were going to hire him. New York, instead, ended up hiring Brian Daboll. Flores also said the Broncos put him through a similar interview three years ago, with no intention of considering him for the job.

NFL released a statement on Brian Flores lawsuit:

“The NFL and our clubs are deeply committed to ensuring equitable employment practices and continue to make progress in providing equitable opportunities throughout our organizations. Diversity is core to everything we do, and there are few issues on which our clubs and our internal leadership team spend more time. We will defend against these claims, which are without merit.”
