Brian Flores looking less and less like the Arizona Cardinals guy
The Arizona Cardinals had interest in potentially hiring Brian Flores to be their next head coach. But another team may throw a wrench into their plans.
Of all the remaining potential head coaches the Arizona Cardinals planned to interview, Brian Flores was the only one remaining with head coaching experience. But news outlets are reporting the Denver Broncos, yeah, the same Denver Broncos that Sean Payton is now in charge of, are interested in the former Miami Dolphins coach.
Obviously, this is going to pose as a problem to many Cardinals fans who wanted to see Flores in charge down in the desert now that Payton is in Denver. But does the Mile High City and Rocky Mountain scenery appeal more to Flores than the desert landscape that Phoenix offers?
Arizona Cardinals may lose out on Brian Flores
If Flores joins Sean Payton in Denver as the team’s defensive coordinator, it means the incumbent Ejiro Evero will be out of the driver’s seat with the Broncos. Evero could easily wind up in the desert to replace the departed Kliff Kingsbury if Flores or anyone else in Denver is sitting in his seat, but he’ll also have to face a slew of candidates to win the job.
Those also rumored to be in consideration for the Redbirds head coaching job also include Lou Anarumo, Brian Callahan, Aaron Glenn, and Mike Kafka. None of the names have experience as a head coach in the NFL, though Evero was offered the interim job after Denver parted ways with Nathanial Hackett.
The Broncos will interview several candidates for defensive coordinator, and Flores is just one of a few names. However, this could and should be unnerving in the eyes of many Cardinals fans who hoped the team would hire an experienced head coach.
