The Miami Dolphins stormed to a 33-24 victory over the New England Patriots in the final match of the regular season, to cap off a decent season for them. However, it was not enough for the veteran coach Brian Flores to keep his job as the head coach of the Dolphins.

After joining the franchise in 2019, the 40-year old has taken the side upwards constantly, and the move came as a huge shock to many followers of the game. The Dolphins finished the season on a 9-8 record, continuing their winning run into the second season from last year.

The Dolphins started off the season on the worst possible note, having gone down to 1-7 at one stage, however, they rallied back under Brian Flores to finish it 9-8. Their late surge meant they only missed the playoffs by only one match, in what was a half-decent for the Dolphins.

Flores finished his spell at the Dolphins with a 24-25 record in his 49 matches which spanned for a total of three years. Brian Flores released a statement to thank the franchise for all the support during his tenure.
