Dolphins to conduct a “second interview” with Brian Flores tonight

The Dolphins can’t hire Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores until after the Super Bowl. But they can get together this week and begin making plans for the early days of his tenure.

Technically, it’s a second interview. According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins will conduct said second interview of Flores on Tuesday night.

It’s been widely reported that the Dolphins will hire Flores after New England’s season ends. The second interview, permitted by rule during the dead week before Super Bowl week, will become as a practical matter an effort to map out some of the things that will happen when Flores becomes the next coach.

If Flores becomes the next coach. Because, obviously, it’s not done until it’s done. Everyone learned that last year, and in theory either the Dolphins or Flores could choose to not proceed with a signed contract this year.

Especially if the “second interview” ends up going poorly.

  1. Considering that Miami has waited this long for the Patriots season to end to officially announce Flores as the next Dolphins’ Head Coach, what does Flores have to do in this second interview to lose the job?

  2. No deal is done until there’s a signed contract.
    Let’s hope Dolphin ownership/management learned from the last failed NE coaching hire that things can go wrong. I’m willing to give Flores a chance even though Miami’s history with first time HC’s is terrible.
    Maybe there’s a reason Caldwell has already been vetted, nothing like having a fall-back plan in place.

  3. This is a form of cheating. Why can’t they wait until after the playoffs and SB? Miami is just doing this to try to create a distraction like with Mangini not being qualified only after the 1 year as a DC, only to be handed a boatload of cash by a division rival.

    Any fan should not want division rivals doing this when their team is still playing.

    Their owner is too dumb to do that. The Jets, well, they’re sneaky and cunning, that’s their excuse.

  5. Dolphins trying to replicate the Patriots mystique. Who else are they going to poach from the Pats? Amendola and Bolden are already there. The Patriots are having brain and brawn drain. Wonder how they’ll do next year.

  6. Its a “done” deal until it isn’t!
    Thanks to the Mcdaniels-Indy fiasco don’t expect anything definitive until sometime Feb 4th!
    I like most of the staff he’s picked EXCEPT the DC Pat Graham – just look at how bad the GB LB corps was under his coaching!

  7. I think the first and obvious question to ask would be, “Why should we hire you when your defence was ranked 21st in the league in yards allowed?”
