NFL Rocked by Racism Allegations in Flores Suit
Updated on

Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores accused the National Football League of pervasive racial bias, claiming discrimination denied him the top job at the New York Giants.

Flores, who is Black, filed a proposed class action against the league in Manhattan federal court on Tuesday, naming the Giants, Dolphins and Denver Broncos as co-defendants. But he said all NFL teams have hired very few Black people for the top coaching and front-office jobs, even though approximately 70% of the league’s players are Black.
