Another candidate has emerged in the Browns’ search for a new defensive coordinator.

Cleveland put in a request to interview Steelers senior defensive assistant/linebackers coach Brian Flores, according to multiple reports.

Mike Tomlin essentially confirmed that news during his Monday press conference, though Tomlin did not disclose the team who requested to interview Flores.

Flores compiled a 24-25 record in his three seasons as the Dolphins head coach before he was fired last January. Flores then filed a lawsuit against the league and several teams alleging racial discrimination in hiring practices. Nevertheless, head coach Mike Tomlin and the Steelers hired Flores in mid-February.

The Browns fired defensive coordinator Joe Woods on Monday. The club has also reportedly requested to interview Patriots linebackers coach Jerod Mayo.

  1. Should be interviewing for the Head coaching job. That team needs a tough tell it like it is no nonsense coach.

  2. That would be perfect for him he finally gets Watson and is not in charge which is a win for the Browns offense

  3. The Steelers need to keep Flores.
    Promote him to DC.
    Hate to have the Steelers go up against the Browns next season with their DC having been in the same division.

  7. I’ll side with Mortimer and say Flores is better suited to be a DC than HC – he’s not a people person or even a good communicator.

  8. Flores should turn the Browns down. Asking him to be defensive coordinator with Stephanski as head coach is a slap in the face. With all the talent Stephanski’s had and hasn’t managed to accomplish much of anything he should be fired.If I’m Flores I would stay with the steelers unless a head coach position was offered.

  9. Stefanski and Flores together will remind me of my childhood Browns when I say Marty Schottenheimer, Bill Cowher and Lindy Infante all on the same sideline as Browns coaches. Those were the days of smart and sound football. I miss them. MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

  10. I’m sure most Browns fans would like to have Flores as defensive coordinator but why should he agree to join a sinking ship because only bowl browns going to with stephanski in charge is the
