More interviews for the Arizona Cardinals as they continue on with the quest of finding not just a new head coach, but also a new general manager.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Cardinals have requested permission to interview Steelers defensive assistant Brian Flores.

Following his nearly 10-year tenure with the Pats, Flores went on to be the head coach for the Miami Dolphins from 2019–2021.
In two of his three seasons as head coach, the Dolphins recorded winning records but failed to make the playoffs.
Additionally, Flores brings an interesting connection with Adrian Wilson, whom the Cardinals have interviewed as a possible general manager candidate.
While Flores coached for the Patriots in 2013, Adrian Wilson was actually on the team’s roster, although he did not get any playing time, Wilson has reportedly spoken highly of Brian Flores.
According to Mike Jurecki, “he was very impressed with his football IQ, knowledge of being able to coach multiple positions, and his command.”
