Miami Dolphins fire coach Brian Flores after 3 seasons

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Back-to-back winning seasons were not enough for Brian Flores to keep his job as coach of the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins fired Flores on Monday, a somewhat surprising move that came less than 24 hours after the team finished a 9-8 season. Flores went 24-25 while failing to make the playoffs in his three seasons in Miami, but finishing this year with eight wins in the final nine games.

The primary issues that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross cited for the decision seemed to have little to do with the on-field product and more with communication within the team's braintrust - though there were no specific examples offered of how the team determined Flores wasn't the right fit in those regards.
