Brian Flores is back on a coaching staff in the NFL.
The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Saturday afternoon that the team has hired the former Miami Dolphins head coach as a “defensive assistant/linebackers” coach. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Flores is currently also in the process of suing the NFL over alleged racial discrimination.

I have no idea how Flores being hired by the Steelers will impact his lawsuit, but I’m not surprised at all that he’s already back on a staff.
Flores can coach. That’s just a fact. No matter what you think of his lawsuit, there’s no doubt the man can coach.

Whether as a coordinator or as a position coach, I never had a doubt that Flores would eventually get another job in the NFL.

The only question now is whether or not his lawsuit will stop him from becoming a head coach again. Only time will tell, but at least he’s back on a staff!
