“I made the decision today to part ways with Brian Flores,” Ross said in a statement. “After assessing where we are as an organization and what we need to improve on in the future, I determined that the key dynamic in our football organization is not performing at the level I want it to be and I felt this decision was in the best interests of the Miami Dolphins. “
Ross added: “I think we have a talented young team in place and we have the opportunity to be much better in 2022. I want to thank Brian for his hard work and wish him nothing but the best for his to come up.”
Needham wasn’t the only Dolphins player to react to the news.
Long snapper Blake Ferguson said Flores “changed my life forever”.
“I can’t thank Coach Flo enough for taking my chance,” Ferguson tweeted.
