Bron­cos in­ter­view Pats as­sis­tant Flores

Sunday Star - - SPORTS -

— 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.
