Steelers Brian Flores Hired as Minnesota Vikings Defensive Coordinator

Pittsburgh Steelers senior defensive assistant Brian Flores will become the next defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Flores, 41, spent one season with the Steelers as senior defensive assistant and linebackers coach. He was hired by Pittsburgh last spring after he was fired following three seasons as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins.

Flores was one of the hottest names of the NFL coaching carousel this offseason, and was also a finalist to be the next head coach of the Arizona Cardinals and interviewed with more than a half dozens squads for head coach and defensive coordinator vacancies.
