Dolphins conclude interviews, hoping to hire Brian Flores

The Miami Dolphins concluded their interview process for a new head coach Friday -- and the candidate they intend and hope to hire is Brian Flores, ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports.

Flores, currently linebackers coach of the New England Patriots, was the first person Miami interviewed in the wake of its firing of Adam Gase on Dec. 31.

The Dolphins chose Flores, most notably, for his impressive leadership skills. They did not look for somebody who was specific to offense or defense -- but rather someone who would serve as the best head coach they could find.
