The Dolphins fired head coach Brian Flores after three seasons with the franchise in what was certainly seen as a shock.

The decision came from Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who released a statement offering an explanation.

"I made a decision today to part ways with Brian Flores," Ross said. "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."

Jim Harbaugh is rumored to be coming to the NFL from Michigan but Ross insisted he was not targetting the Wolverines head coach.

Miami was expected to compete for an AFC East title in 2021 after finishing 10-6 and missing the playoffs in 2020. The team won its opening game before losing seven straight, putting itself in a hole no other team in NFL history has come back from to make the playoffs. However, Miami responded to its seven-game losing streak with a seven-game winning streak -- becoming the first team in league history to do both in the same season.  

They failed to make the Playoffs after losing to Tennessee in Week 17.

What was not a shock this Black Monday, the Chicago Bears getting rid of Matt Nagy, GM Ryan Pace following a 6-11 season.  Monday's news has been brewing since the end of November with sportsbooks making him the favorite to be fired next following firing of Urban Meyer back in early December.  Instead, Denver beat everyone to the punch of Sunday with the firing of Vic Fangio.
