Brian Flores has found a new home after being fired by the Miami Dolphins last month. The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that the team has hired Flores who will serve as a defensive assistant/linebackers coach. Flores interviewed for a couple head coaching positions after being let go by the Dolphins and ended up filing a lawsuit against the NFL for racial discrimination. Even though he has a new job, Flores will not be dismissing his case. At least he and Minkah Fitzpatrick can be reunited after their rocky relationship in Miami.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
