Broncos interview Pats assistant Flores
— John Elway flew to Boston on Saturday to interview New England Patriots linebackers coach and defensive play caller Brian Flores about the Denver Broncos’ head coaching vacancy.
Flores, 37, also interviewed with the Browns, Packers and Dolphins about their openings.
Flores, who played linebacker at Boston College, broke into the NFL in the Patriots’ scouting department in 2004 and moved onto Bill Belichick’s coaching staff in 2008.
While there’s plenty of buzz about Flores, he brings caveats for Elway, who went with a novice head coach who had just a year’s coordinating experience when he hired Vance Joseph two years ago.
Elway fired Joseph on Monday with an 11-21 mark, including 6-10 in 2018.
