Flores described the situation on CNN on Wednesday morning. The former Miami head coach was asked if Ross explicitly told him he would give Flores $100,000 for every game he lost: “Yeah, he did. It’s not something. thing you make up… don’t need to win now. You’re going to keep your job. You signed a contract.

“I have a group of men in this dressing room that I have to look them in the eye and… let them know that I’m helping them reach their potential, we’re trying to win games. I was never going to defend that. I would say it strained a lot of relationships in Miami.

Flores said his refusal to accept money to lose and refusal to tamper with players contributed to his dismissal.

“Absolutely. 100%. I think it’s strained a lot of relationships and not necessarily in the building.

“I implore people to talk to people in the Miami Dolphins building. From a cultural standpoint and from a relationship standpoint, I do everything I can to try to make people feel appreciated and it certainly was. I can’t wait to hear from these people about their relationship with me.”

Via the Dolphins organization, Ross released a statement denying Flores’ claims.

“Regarding the Brian Flores allegations, I am a man of honor and integrity and cannot let them go unanswered. I personally oppose these malicious attacks, and the truth must be known. His allegations are false, malicious and defamatory,” Ross said.

“We understand that there are media reports indicating that the NFL intends to investigate his allegations, and we will cooperate fully. I welcome this investigation and look forward to defending my personal integrity, as well as the integrity and values ​​of the entire Miami Dolphins organization, from these baseless, unjust and derogatory assertions.”

The Dolphins told CNN in a statement, “We are aware of the lawsuit from the media that came out this afternoon. We vehemently deny any allegations of racial discrimination and are proud of the diversity and inclusion within of our organization.

“The implication that we acted in a manner inconsistent with the integrity of the game is incorrect. We will withhold any further comment on the lawsuit at this time.”

When asked to comment, the NFL told CNN: “The NFL and our clubs are deeply committed to ensuring fair employment practices and continue to make progress in providing equitable opportunities across all of our organizations.

“Diversity is at the heart of everything we do, and there are few issues that our clubs and internal management team spend more time on. We will defend ourselves against these claims, which are baseless.”
