sport news Minnesota Vikings hire in-demand Brian Flores as defensive coordinator trends now
The Minnesota Vikings are planning to hire Brian Flores as defensive coordinator after a month-long search to replace former coordinator Ed Donatell according to ESPN.
Flores spent last season as the Pittsburgh Steelers linebackers coach/senior defensive assistant.
He is set to take over a defense that finished 31st in the NFL in yards allowed and is likely to undergo significant personal changes throughout the offseason.
Before spending a year with the Steelers, Flores spent several years as the head coach for the Miami Dolphins where he was known for running a blitz-heavy scheme that implored large amounts of man coverage in the secondary.
