Despite speculation that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was interested in hiring Jim Harbaugh as coach, the Dolphins are not targeting the Michigan coach, sources told Darlington.

“I made a decision today to part ways with Brian Flores,” Ross said in a statement released by the team. “After evaluating where we are as an organization and what we need going forward to improve, I determined that key dynamics of our football organization weren’t functioning at a level I want it to be and felt that this decision was in the best interest of the Miami Dolphins. I believe we have a talented young roster in place and have the opportunity to be much better in 2022. I want to thank Brian for his hard work and wish him nothing but the best in his future.”

The Dolphins finished 9-8 this season, recovering from a 1-7 start but failing to make the playoffs.

Flores, 40, was 24-25 in three seasons as the team’s coach.

He was hired by the Dolphins in 2019 after spending 11 seasons on the New England Patriots staff, the last eight coaching defense.
