The Miami Dolphins have officially hired Brian Flores as head coach.

Flores served as de facto defensive coordinator of the New England Patriots this past season.

Flores is the Dolphins' 10th head coach (including interims) since 2004.

Flores helped devise a scheme and called the plays for a Patriots defense that held Sean McVay's Rams to just three points in Super Bowl LIII, tied for fewest in Super Bowl history.
