Schefter: Brian Flores ‘very much in play’ for Cardinals’ head coaching job
Arizona could be the beneficiary of the potential turnover in New England when it comes to the next coach.
After interviewing with the team last Saturday, there was little information on Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores regarding the meeting, but a recent report may indicate the coach is still very much in the running for the job.
Good chance the Patriots lose both coordinators to HC jobs, but LB coach Brian Flores is very much in play in Arizona, per league sources, meaning New England could potentially lose three assistants to HC jobs.

Flores has been with the Patriots since 2004, working all the way up from a scouting assistant at the age of 23 to the safeties coach in 2012. He spent four seasons with the safeties before turning his focus to the linebackers. The Cardinals are reportedly the only team that requested an interview with the Patriots linebackers coach the past two seasons.
