Brian Flores has probably had a busy week preparing for Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53, but he won't get much time off before starting the next step in his career. 

According to Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, via ESPN's Adam Schefter, Flores, the Patriots linebackers coach and defensive play-caller, plans to fly to Miami the Monday after the Super Bowl and become the next head coach of the Dolphins. He will be joined by Patriots wide receivers coach Chad O'Shea, who's expected to be Maimi's next offensive coordinator. 

This won't be the first time the Patriots lose a defensive play-caller the day after a Super Bowl. Following their loss to the Eagles in Super Bowl 52, defensive coordinator Matt Patricia became the Lions' head coach the day after. He was officially introduced two days later. 

Sunday will likely be Flores' last game with the Patriots after a 15-year run with the franchise. A deal has reportedly been in place for weeks for him to take the Dolphins job. The 37-year old began as a scouting assistant with New England in 2004.
