Texans interview Brian Flores for coaching job

Texans interview Brian Flores for coaching job

One day after announcing the firing of head coach David Culley, the interviewed former Miami Dolphins coach for the same position Friday.

Field Level Media’s Aaron Wilson reported Thursday that Flores was Houston’s top target for the vacancy. Flores and Texans general manager Nick Caserio have a shared history from their time with the New England Patriots.

Flores, 40, was fired after three seasons in Miami in which the Dolphins managed two winning seasons but failed to make the playoffs. Flores amassed a 24-25 record in that span.

Flores also interviewed Friday for the Chicago Bears’ open head-coaching job.

Culley, 66, guided the Texans to a 4-13 record in his lone season on the job. He did so without having access to quarterback Deshaun Watson, who demanded a trade before sitting out the season in the wake of 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault and misconduct.

Flores is the first known candidate to interview in Houston. The news came on the same day that Caserio told reporters that firing Culley was “one of the hardest decisions I’ve made in my life.”

Houston also fired offensive coordinator Tim Kelly on Thursday.
