The Dolphins head coach has been fired from his position after three years. As he leaves the team we find out more about Brian Flores’ wife Jennifer Duncan.
Brian Flores has been sacked by the Miami Dolphins after three years as head coach. The news came just 12 hours after Flores coached the team to a 33-24 victory over the New England Patriots.
Flores was 24-25 during his tenure with the Dolphins and, despite starting the season poorly, managed to rally the team from 1-7 to 8-7. The Dolphins announced the news on Monday (10 January), with team owner Stephen Ross confirming the news in a statement.
Dolphins release statement on Flores
“I made a decision today to part ways with Brian Flores,” Ross said. “After evaluating where we are as an organisation and what we need going forward to improve, I determined that key dynamics of our football organisation weren’t functioning at a level I want it to be and felt 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.”
Who is Brian Flores’ wife, Jennifer Duncan?
Flores is unlikely to be without a job for long and will be a top candidate should any team have an opening. After the news, fans wanted to know more about Brian Flores’ wife, Jennifer Duncan, who will no doubt support her coach through a challenging part of his career.
Jennifer Duncan met Brian Flores during their college years after vacationing in Acapulco for spring break one year.
Flores explained in an interview with Yahoo Sports! that he spotted Duncan straight away and knew she was the one. “That’s the girl I’m going to marry,” he said.
The couple tied the knot in 2009 and lived in New England until 2019, when Brian got the job with the Dolphins. They moved to south Florida where they have lived ever since.
Jennifer Duncan is a Spanish teacher who previously worked at Foxborough Regional Charter School, just outside Attleboro, Massachusetts. However, according to her Twitter she appeared to leave some time in 2011 and moved to a new school.
As well as Twitter, Jennifer Flores can be found on Facebook, where she has uploaded numerous photos of husband Brian Flores and their family.
Brian and his wife have three children
Jennifer and Brian Flores have three children – sons Miles and Maxwell and daughter Liliana.
Liliana’s birth was particularly dramatic, as Jennifer went into labour during the Patriots play-off game against the Houston Texans in 2017. Brian told ESPN that Bill Belichick told him to be with his wife, but Brian called her from the ambulance instead. She told him to stay, and it all worked out as the Patriots won and Liliana was born perfectly healthy.
Jennifer has shared plenty of photos of her and Brian’s children on Facebook, including a family trip to Cancun in 2018.
