Brian Flores lost his job to start the week and he’ll be interviewing for another one as it comes to an end.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Flores is interviewing with the Bears for their head coaching vacancy on Friday. Flores was fired by the Dolphins on Monday after three seasons as their head coach.

Flores went 24-25 to during his three years in Miami while the Bears were 22-27 under Matt Nagy during the same span. Word out of Miami was that Flores did not mesh well with General Manager Chris Grier and others in the organization, but it is not known who he will be working with in Chicago as they’re currently in the market for a General Manager to replace Ryan Pace.

Saints assistant G.M. Jeff Ireland is next up on the interview list for that job and his meeting with the Bears is also scheduled for Friday.

  1. Goid coach, good motivator, rough personality, can’t keep staff especially on the offensive side of the ball. I know he’s the hot name out there right now but if the Bears search committee really digs into why he’s unexpectedly available I think they’ll take a pass. They need the total package to lead the rebuild in Chicago and he ain’t it.

  2. HC Brian Flores and GM Eliot Wolf would make a powerful team in Chicago. But Bears fans should not expect too much too soon. This will be a Chicago Cubs-style turnaround similar to what happened when Theo Epstein joined the Cubs.

  3. If what is being reported about Flores is actually accurate or even partially accurate then Miami made the right move to get rid of him. Wherever he ends up if you are a fan of that team just remember that one thing is true, he cannot get top tier coordinators to work for him. He will go through them like rolls of toilet paper until he finds the one that will yes sir him no matter what the circumstances are.
    He went through 4 offensive coordinators in 3 years in Miami.

  4. Ross should sell the team. Just because you have money doesn’t make you a good owner. About 5 other teams fall in that category.

  5. The Saints GM well worked out so well with Pace, it should work again.

    Chicago doesn’t have a strong enough ownership/front office to deal with Flores unless they’re just going to hire him and let him loose.

  6. Not sure why Flores would want to go from one dysfunctional front office to another. No matter how good the coach is, they’re not going to succeed if management is shambolic.

  7. So he got fired for not supporting Tua (it was Flores who led the rumors of that revolt last year), and now Chicago wants him to bash the run based projected bust Fields, after Flores wanted Mac Jones?

    LOL!

    Wouldn’t it have been easier if Chicago just drafted Jones and then lured Flores in?

    You can’t make this stuff up.

    And according to reports, if Fields has a bad game he’s going to tell him he wishes they had picked Mac Jones instead instead of him.

    Ex-patriots guys are for some reason jealous of the Patriots.

  9. I’m sorry, but I don’t see the fascination with Coach Flo. Each year he was in Miami he changed coaching staffs about as often as he changes underwear. He presided this past season over a team ranked 18th in passing and 30th in rushing. In 6 of their 8 losses, they were beaten by a combined score of 189-58, and in their 7 game win streak, they beat the Texans, the Panthers, the Giants and the Jets twice. He is not a good coach. Houston can have him.

    This is a good observation.

    They like the attention and money/raise, and apparently don’t understand the reason why they are hired is because teams are told to hire BBs assistants to harass and weaken the Pats by Goodell.

    So, in turn, there is this perception these very inexperienced coaches somehow stink, when in reality, they’ve walked into a terrible environment and lack real coaching experience. Flores only spent 1 year as a coordinator. That’s not enough.

    If I am a wanted coach, I am not going to a franchise with a horrible owner and horrible GM.

    I am hand picking my GM and going to a franchise with a good owner that doesn’t meddle and isn’t clueless like Stephen Ross and all the others in this league. I realize that limits your options, but those would be my stipulations, or there is no deal and don’t bother calling my agent. I’ll just wait until a good environment presents itself and then keep learning from BB and getting more experiencer than just 1 lousy year on the job as coordinator.

    Flores got what was coming to him. He’ll get it in Chicago, too. Until the McCaskeys sell, it doesn’t matter which coach they pick.

    This can be said for probably 75% of the teams in this league to varying degrees, especially the ones with inherited silver spooned kids who never had a job in their lives.

  11. Flores had a knack for getting rid of players he didn’t get along with, no matter how talented they were. He didn’t realize his job was to coach to the strengths of the players he was given and to get them to play to the best of their abilities. All Flores had to do was look at what his predecessors Gase and Philbin did–they pulled the same stunts–getting rid of diffucult but talented players in exchange for easier to coach but less talented players–and look where that got them.

    If Flores doesn’t want to put forth the effort to coach up players he doesn’t get along with or thinks are beneath his talent standards, then he is not HC material.

  12. Why on Earth are they interviewing coaching candidates before locking up a GM??

    If you’re a GM candidate, aren’t you saying to yourself “wait a second… I’m not going to have a say in who the head coach is? Maybe I should steer clear of this dysfunctional franchise.”

  13. Bears are screwing this up already. Flores will be perfect because I promise you it will be a crap show. The biggest problem with the Bears right now is I keep reading about coaches they are interested in and they do not have a GM. If they need both it is common sense to find the GM and let him lead most of the coaching search and make the final choice. If not they are taking a chance on putting two guys together who do not mesh. And from FLores past he does not play well with others so they better let the GM be the first hire.

  14. Why in the world they would go after Ireland is beyond me, just more good ole boy crap going on with the Bears, just a cluster.
