Brian Flores missed out on a job opportunity with the Houston Texans, but the franchise made him somewhat proud in their decision for their head coaching position.
On Monday, the Houston Texans have officially reached an agreement with Lovie Smith to their next head coach.
The Texans were reportedly down to former NFL QB Josh McCown, Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon, and former Dolphins HC Brian Flores for their head coach vacancy. However, the search took a turn last night with Smith emerging as the likely candidate to take over as head coach.
Hour slater, Flores would drop a statement on the hiring of a Black head coach while also mentioning that he did not get the job because of his lawsuit against the league.
“Mr. Flores is happy to hear that the Texans have hired a Black head coach, Lovie Smith as Mr. Flores’ goal in bringing his case is to provide real opportunities for Black and minority candidates to be considered for coaching and executive positions within the NFL.
However, we would be remiss not to mention that Mr. Flores was one of three finalists for the Texans’ head coach position and after a great interview and mutual interest, it is that the only reason Mr. Flores was not selected was his decision to stand up against racial inequality across the NFL”
