Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores dropped a bombshell on the football world this week by filing a racial discrimination lawsuit against the NFL and three teams.
Flores is accusing the Dolphins of incentivizing losses and improperly recruiting players, while also alleging the New York Giants and Denver Broncos conducted “sham interviews” for their head coach vacancies.
If Flores is successful in his class-action case, it could bring massive change to the NFL’s hiring process, which currently implements the “Rooney Rule,” requiring teams to interview at least two minority candidates for head-coaching jobs.
No matter what the outcome is, Los Angeles Rams outside linebacker Von Miller is using the lawsuit as an incentive to become a general manager when his playing career is over, via ESPN’s Coley Harvey:
Brian Flores’ lawsuit is serving as inspiration for Rams DE Von Miller, who said this today: “That gives me an extra incentive to become a GM … so I can change things for the better.
Said he wants to chase that “dream”of being in a front office whatever he’s done playing.

Miller previously has spoken of wanting to join a team’s front office after he retires, and it appears he is more motivated than ever to make that a reality.
Now in his 10th season, Miller has proven he still has plenty left in the tank despite being 32 years old. He recorded 9.5 sacks in 15 regular-season games between the Broncos and Rams, which was his highest total since 2018.
Miller has added two additional sacks in the playoffs and attributed his success to wanting to help his Rams teammates win a Super Bowl title. The eight-time Pro Bowler is set to become a free agent this offseason but he has expressed a desire to finish his career in L.A.
