DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins have interviewed New England defensive coordinator Brian Flores for their vacant head coaching job.

"We have completed our interview with Brian Flores for our head-coaching position," team spokesman Brett Brecheisen said in a statement Friday.

Flores is a longtime Patriots assistant, most recently serving as defensive coordinator. He joined New England as a scouting assistant under Bill Belichick in 2004 and has held various positions with the team ever since, coaching special teams, safeties and linebackers before taking over defensive play-calling duties in 2018.

Miami is searching for a head coach after firing Adam Gase, who compiled a 23-25 record in three seasons with the Dolphins.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Dolphins are scheduled to interview Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy later Friday.
