Over the past two weeks, Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Brian Flores has been a busy man.
Just about every team with a defensive coordinator opening has requested to speak with him. On Thursday afternoon, the Atlanta Falcons were added to that growing list.
"The #Falcons interviewed #Steelers senior defensive assistant and linebackers coach Brian Flores for their vacant DC job," NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said.
Fans think it would be a great hire.
"I’ll take Flores or Fangio," added another.
Others think Flores is waiting to be a head coach again.
"I didn’t think Flores was gonna be looking for a DC job. He’s good enough to be a HC. Brian Flores is miles clear of Joe Barry," one fan said.
Flores filed a lawsuit against the NFL in the offseason, a move that may have cost him a better job. He eventually signed on with the Steelers, but is clearly ready for a larger role.
