After winning the AFC Championship on Sunday, the New England Patriots are now enjoying another bye week before their next game. The weekend off — relatively speaking, the team will still work on getting ready for Super Bowl 53 against the Los Angeles Rams — also allows for defensive signal caller Brian Flores to conduct a second interview with the Miami Dolphins, as the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley reported earlier today.
According to Beasley, the interview will take place today but you should not get your hopes up just yet that Flores suddenly turns down the job that he will likely be offered after the Super Bowl: after all, he is expected to become the Dolphins’ next head coach once the current season is done. Instead, today’s interview will likely be more about concrete visions for a franchise that has already started hiring assistant coaches.
That being said, there is still a small albeit unlikely chance that Flores decides to turn down the job: Miami cannot sign the 37-year old to a contract until the season is over and as Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels taught us last year, nothing is set in stone until a deal is signed. However, judging by all we know at this point in time it appears unlikely that this is the way the Flores situation is headed.
