Brian Flores Quotes

The Rooney rule is intended to give minorities an opportunity to sit down in front of ownership, but what I think it’s turned into an instance in which guys are just checking the box, and that’s been the case. I’ve been on some interviews in the past where I’ve had that feeling. There’s always no way to know for sure, but you know. I know I’m not alone. —Brian Flores That’s very reasonable to me, at the same time, I know a lot of very capable coaches, executives who are minorities and in a lot of cases are as qualified, more qualified or quite frankly better than their White counterparts. They’re not given an opportunity. —Brian Flores I understand the risks. And, yes, it was a difficult decision, and I went back and forth, and like I said, I love coaching. I do. It’s something that I’m passionate about. It brings me joy. I love helping young people reach their potential and become the best versions of themselves. I’m gifted to do that. —Brian Flores It was a range of emotions. Humiliation. Disbelief. Anger. I worked so hard to get to where I am in football to become a head coach. For 18 years in this league, to go on what felt like or what was a sham interview. I was hurt. —Brian Flores What needs to be changed with respect to The Rooney Rule is not the rule, but owners’ compliance with the rule and the league’s willingness to come down hard on owners when they violate the rule, the rule and the concept behind the rule are, in my view, strong. Compliance with the rule is, in my view, sorely lacking and that’s where the disconnect is and that’s what led to Brian Flores ‘ lawsuit. —Brian Flores

Best Quotes By Brian Flores

It was humiliating, to be quite honest. —Brian Flores We didn’t have to file a lawsuit for the world to know there’s a problem from a hiring standpoint in regards to minority coaches in the National Football League. The numbers speak for themselves. We filed a lawsuit so that we can create some change, and that’s important to me. We’re at a fork in the road right now, we’re either gonna keep it the way it is, or we’re gonna go in another direction and actually make some real change where actually changing the hearts and minds of those who make decisions to hire head coaches, executives, etc. We gotta change hearts and minds. —Brian Flores You take jobs to win, your contract says win, so you don’t get paid for losing. And then here I am after being 1-31, I’m kept a third year and given a contract extension that nobody knew. So that should tell everybody something right there. —Brian Flores I understand the risk. Look, I love coaching football. And I still want to coach, but this is bigger than coaching, this is bigger than me. The numbers speak for themselves as far as the hiring, firing and lack of opportunities for minorities and Black coaches and executives in Black NFL. We need things to change. —Brian Flores From my standpoint, what I love about the game is that it brings people together. It really brings people from all walks of life together, so you hate to see anything that brings any type of division. —Brian Flores
