DAVIE White Michael Bennett Jerseys , Fla. (AP) — When Brian Flores was asked how he celebrated winning the Super Bowl, he paused for several seconds and laughed.“I kissed my wife on the field,” Flores said.Then it was on to the next challenge, and a big one — fixing the Miami Dolphins. Flores, the New England Patriots‘ linebackers coach and defensive play-caller, was hired Monday as Miami’s head coach.He accepted the job hours after helping the Patriots shut down the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams for a 13-3 victory in the title game Sunday night in Atlanta.“It has been a whirlwind 24 hours,” Flores said with a smile at a news conference that drew two dozen cameras.“Looking at this crowd here, you’d think we won the Super Bowl,” Miami owner Stephen Ross said. “I’ve never seen this many people in this room. … To me, you start an organization by signing a great leader. I believe we’ve found that leader.”Flores was the first person the Dolphins interviewed after they fired coach Adam Gase on Dec. 31. They decided on Jan. 11 to offer the job to Flores but had to wait until New England’s season ended to complete an agreement.“I wasn’t in a rush to become a head coach,” said Flores, 37. “I had a good job in New England.”Flores said the job with the Patriots’ longtime AFC East foil was appealing because he shared a vision with general manager Chris Grier on how to build a winner.While preparing for the Super Bowl, Flores also began to hire a Miami staff. The group is expected to include former Colts and Lions head coach Jim Caldwell as assistant head coach, Patriots receivers coach Chad O’Shea as offensive coordinator and Packers assistant Patrick Graham as defensive coordinator.The son of Honduran immigrants, Flores grew up in Brooklyn and has spent his entire coaching career with the Patriots. He joined them in 2004 and became their de facto defensive coordinator a year ago after Matt Patricia left to join the Lions as their head coach.Flores is the ninth former assistant to Bill Belichick to become a head coach.“I think he’ll be awesome,” Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty said. “But he’s in the division, so I told him he can’t win too many games.”Flores becomes the NFL’s fourth minority head coach for 2019 Michael Bennett Jerseys 2019 , which is half the total of last season. Diversity advocates have questioned the effectiveness of the Rooney Rule requiring teams to interview at least one minority candidate for any head coach or general manager vacancy.A former Boston College linebacker, Flores also coached offense and special teams with New England. He has a long relationship with Grier, who took charge of football operations in the recent organizational shake-up.Both started as scouts for the Patriots, the Dolphins’ longtime nemeses in the AFC East. Flores will report to Grier under the team’s new, more streamlined leadership structure.Among those attending the news conference were Flores’ wife, Jennifer, their three children and his high school coach. Also on hand was the last quarterback to lead Miami to a Super Bowl, Dan Marino, in 1984, and the last quarterback to help the Dolphins win one, Bob Griese, in 1973.Flores is leaving a team that won its sixth Super Bowl since 2002 to join a franchise that has not won a playoff game since 2000 and plans to rebuild after another dismal season.The Dolphins went 7-9 in 2018 to miss the playoffs for the 15th time in 17 years. They allowed 6,257 yards, the most in franchise history, and the offense was also among the league’s worst, finishing ranked 31st.One win came at home against New England, when the Dolphins scored a miraculous touchdown with a pass and double lateral on the final play. The Patriots had expected a Hail Mary pass White Danny Shelton Jerseys , and second-guessers complained that their secondary included lumbering 6-foot-6 Rob Gronkowski.“My last memory here wasn’t a great one,” Flores said with a chuckle.That improbable finish couldn’t save Gase. Ross fired him, ordered a roster overhaul and acknowledged it may take several seasons to build a winner. The revamp is likely to include the departure of quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who has been with Miami since 2012 but has never taken a postseason snap.Flores becomes Miami’s 10th head coach since 2004, including three interim coaches. Grier noted that two of Flores’ predecessors, Gase and Tony Sparano, reached the playoffs in their first season before the team backslid, so Miami will try a more patient approach.“We want to build this where it’s long term and you can win for many years, instead of trying to go year to year,” Grier said.Flores is braced for the frustrations that come with rebuilding.“That’s part of leadership — dealing with adversity,” he said. “There’s going to be some pain. There’s pain for every team.”As for his curtailed Super Bowl celebration, he wasn’t complaining.“No, this is not getting cheated at all,” Flores said. “That was a great experience, but I guess I’ve always been this way — I look forward.” Don’t underestimate the rookie’s potential impact on fantasy football." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhitePats Pulpita New England Patriots communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpPatriots NewsOpinion and AnalysisContribute!About the SiteTopicsPatriotsOddsShopStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhitePatriots News Opinion and Analysis Contribute!

Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsWhen the New England Patriots drafted N’Keal Harry in the first round of this year’s draft, they added a tall and physical target to quarterback Tom Brady’s arsenal — one seemingly tailor-made for the X-receiver role in the world champions’ offense. As such Danny Shelton Jerseys 2019 , and considering the turnover the Patriots’ skill position group underwent this offseason, it would not be a surprise to see Harry get plenty of action during his rookie season.This is exactly the reason why ESPN columnist Mike Clay recently named the Arizona State product as the top offseason addition made by New England when it comes to potential fantasy football impact. “The Patriots haven’t had much success drafting wide receivers in the Bill Belichick era, but Harry should get an opportunity to put that narrative to bed quickly,” wrote Clay about the 21-year-old wide receiver.“New England’s wide receiver depth chart is wide open behind 33-year-old Julian Edelman, opening the door for Harry — the team’s first-round pick — to earn a full-time role out of the gate. Harry has good size (6-foot-2, 228 pounds), so it wouldn’t be surprising if he was featured near the goal line,” continued Clay who also projects the rookie wide receiver to finish the season with 51 receptions for 680 yards and 4 touchdowns.Numbers like those would make Harry the most statistically successful rookie wide receiver of the Brady/Belichick era, a title currently held by the 37-519-4 season Aaron Dobson produced in 2013. Seeing the 32nd overall selection of this year’s draft post better numbers than Dobson did six years ago would not be a surprise given his skill set in combination with the current composition of New England’s pass catching group.For fantasy purposes, however, Harry might still be a risky investment — but one worth making, according to Clay. “It’s hard to count on rookies in fantasy, but Harry’s combination of talent and opportunity makes him an intriguing target in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts,” he wrote about the youngster. And while a lot can and will happen before fantasy teams get assembled, you should not forget to keep Harry on your radar when the time to draft comes around.
