Vikings DC Brian Flores linked to Los Angeles Chargers opening

Following the decision made by the Los Angeles Chargers to fire Brandon Staley on Friday, the team is going to need a new head coach for the 2024 season.

Among those who could be in contention to fill the vacancy is current Vikings defensive coordinator Brian Flores. During the last few months, Flores has taken a Minnesota defense that was one of the worst units in 2022 and transformed them into a top-five unit this year.

According to some recent odds shared by the Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad on Friday, Flores currently has the fifth-best odds to become the next head coach of the Chargers.

Some other names that could be in the running for the opening in Los Angeles include New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson, and University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh.
