Brian Flores Discusses Relationship with Tua Tagovailoa



Tua Tagovailoa

Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores didn’t appear to believe much in Dolphins young quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, and reports have circulated that paint a picture of a contentious relationship, but Flores maintains that their relationship wasn’t strained.

Flores recently spoke to I Am Athlete about Tagovailoa, and his relationship with the Dolphins quarterback.

“This is an interesting topic” Flores said. “Because it wasn’t strained.”

“I think we had a good relationship. It was a player/coach relationship, and I think in a relationship like that, the coach challenges the player, and often times the player challenges the coach” Flores continued.

“I think there was a great deal of respect between the two of us. So you hear this crazy kind of narrative that’s out there, but this is a young man who works, developed, and got better over two years and I think he’s got a bright future.”
