The lawsuit is a bombshell that comes in the aftermath of Flores’ surprising dismissal last month. That decision by the Dolphins came after Flores had led the team to wins in eight of their last nine games to finish 9-8 on the year.
Flores was hired as Dolphins head coach in 2019 and served in that capacity for three seasons, compiling an overall record of 24-25. During his final two seasons, the Dolphins came up just short in their bid for the postseason.
There’s no indication how soon the case will be heard or if it will even end up reaching the courtroom. Regardless of the eventual result, the case figures to resonate during the offseason.
