Steelers add Brian Flores to coaching staff

The Pittsburgh Steelers named Brian Flores as their senior defensive assistant/linebackers coach on Saturday.

Flores spent 15 years in a variety of roles with the New England Patriots (2004-18) before serving as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins (2019-21). He was fired by the Dolphins in January despite leading the team to back-to-back winning seasons.

“I am excited about Brian Flores joining our coaching staff given his history of developing and teaching defensive players during his time in the NFL,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said. “Brian’s resume speaks for itself, and I look forward to him adding his expertise to help our team.”

Flores, who is Black, has filed a class-action lawsuit against three teams and the NFL for racial discrimination. Along with the Dolphins, the Denver Broncos and New York Giants were named in a suit filed earlier this month.

The 40-year-old served as a scouting assistant, pro scout, special teams assistant and coach, defensive assistant and worked with the safeties and linebackers during his time with the Patriots.
