Wilks, Horton Join Flores Lawsuit
NFL Offseason - Former Miami head coach Brian Flores has filed an ammended lawsuit against the NFL and several NFL teams. The lawsuit now includes former Arizona head coach Steve Wilks and longtime assistant coach Ray Horton. Wilks alledges that he was specifically hired as a "bridge coach" and not given a chance to succeed before getting fired after one year. (As part of the lawsuit, he alledges that he wanted to trade up to draft Josh Allen in 2018; everybody's hindsight is 50-50, I suppose.) Horton claims that his 2016 head coach interview with Tennessee was a "sham" to satisfy the Rooney Rule. The lawsuit also adds the Houston Texans as defendants, alledging that they specifically did not hire Flores as head coach this offseason because of the lawsuit itself. And Flores now claims that he sent a specific memo to Miami executives regarding Stephen Ross' directive to purposefully lose games in 2019.
