The Miami Dolphins missed out on the playoffs by one game, but they may have had the best story of the 2021-22 NFL season with a miraculous comeback after a horrid 1-7 start to the season, finishing with a winning record.
Despite rallying his troops, head coach Brian Flores was fired this morning in Miami as Dolphins head coach.

The Dolphins finished over .500 in two seasons from 2019-2021, something they only did once from 2009-2018.
Flores finishes with a 24-25 record in Miami and in his first two years as an NFL head coach, and he won’t have a heard time landing on his feet and finding a new job.
Miami will retain GM Chris Grier.
