    This is an excellent hire.

    If we keep Devin Bush, I'm excited to see what Brian Flores can do with him.

    Damn...This D should be Steel Curtain 2.0!

    Actually though, Austin should be UNDER Flores! I'm assuming nothing else was out there...Since he's suing and all...

    Tomlin says his resume " speaks for itself "

    Dude? Seriously? If you were going to hire Flores, at least make him defensive coordinator.

    No but seriously, why not hire him as D coordinator? He seems like a good Defensive coach. Maybe because of all the lawsuit stuff? I dunno

    I'm assuming because he probably won't be here that long.

    Because Tomlin is calling the plays so why does it matter?

    He's not yelling racism, he filed a lawsuit because he feels that is a problem with the process, it's his right and shouldn't preclude him from working in the NFL.

    Also, how is this any different from Mike Munchak going from HC of the Titans to Steelers line coach?

    The difference is that Flores was winning as a head coach.

    You answered your own question...I don't think anyone else wanted anything to do with him... Because of his pending lawsuit

    No, he wasn't.

    Career record of 24-25
    Munchak was 22-26

    Their loss. I’m happy to get a coach of his caliber to help with the defense.

    I am surprised that Steelers hired him after Flores sued the NFL, I did not think Flores would get a job but I was wrong

    Like this a lot. Thought he had a chance to our DC. Wondering if they still plan to hire a DB Coach with Austin moving up.

    Steelers got a big win here. Credit to Rooney and Tomlin for being professional and able to separate the lawsuit from what Flores brings to the team.

    Ok… his first season he took over a team that was selling the farm (Minkah, Tunsil, etc) to do a full rebuild, and somehow turned around what was looking like an 0-16 team and got to - I think - 5-11. Edit: He went 10-6 1 year after that.

    Definitely a good coaching resume, so is he being groomed for Tomlins replacement eventually or is this simply a PR hire in light of the fiasco in Miami? Hopefully the drama surrounding that situation and his recent comments do not become an issue here, we have enough as it is.

    Bottom line is, both coaches when from being a HC to a position coach....neither were very successful as a head coach, Flores was probably trending up though...neither had winning records.
