The Texans have completed an interview with Brian Flores for the head coaching position.
For the past three seasons, Flores was the head coach of the Miami Dolphins.
He has coached all three phases of the game – offense, defense and special teams – and began his professional career as a scout. During his 17 years in the NFL, Flores has been a member of four Super Bowl champions and seven AFC championship squads.
Flores joined the Dolphins in 2019 after spending 15 seasons with the New England Patriots, where he served in a variety of roles. He began his NFL career in player personnel, joining the Patriots as a scouting assistant in 2004. He was promoted to pro scout in 2006. Flores began his coaching career as a special teams assistant for New England in 2008 and 2009. The next season, Flores served as an offensive assistant and also worked with special teams. He spent 2011 through 2018 in New England coaching defense, first as a defensive assistant (2011), then as safeties coach (2012-2015), linebackers coach (2016-2017) and finally as the team's defensive play-caller and linebackers coach in 2018.
A two-year starter at linebacker for Boston College, Flores was part of four bowl-winning teams. He was named to the Big East All-Academic Team in 2003.
Flores is a native of Brooklyn, New York and attended Poly Prep, where he played running back and linebacker. He graduated from Boston College with his bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in administrative studies.
