Cordarrelle Patterson, once again, speaks for the Falcons fanbase
Is there a more likable player on the Atlanta Falcons than Cordarrelle Patterson? Younghoe Koo might rival him but Patterson has made it clear how invested he is in this team by openly discussing things that the typical player wouldn’t.
Recently, it became public that the Falcons were interviewing Brian Flores for their defensive coordinator job, and CP has made it clear that he wants Flores to be hired—much like the rest of us.
Cordarrelle Patterson has made his thoughts public on who he wants the Falcons’ new DC to be
The Falcons have been busy when it comes to interviewing coaches for their defensive coordinator vacancy. One of their more recent interview requests is for current Steelers coach Brian Flores, and Cordarrelle Patterson, along with most of us, approves.
Patterson tweeted this out on Monday morning:
I think he is speaking to the choir here. Brian Flores would be an excellent hire and seems like the type of coach who could finally produce a solid defense for the Dirty Birds.
Flores coached for the Patriots for ten years, his last year being 2018, which was also the same year that Patterson played for the Pats. So, while Flores was never CP’s position coach, he certainly got to see the type of coach he was.
Brian Flores went on to become the Miami Dolphins’ head coach for three seasons. He was able to bring success to the franchise but was unfairly fired following the 2021 season. He ended up suing three teams (including the Dolphins) and the NFL for discrimination.
That didn’t stop him from coaching, however, as the Steelers were willing to hire him to be their senior defensive assistant and linebackers coach this past season. It seems likely that they will lose him because there is a line of other teams who are interested in either making him their head coach or defensive coordinator. We can only hope he ends up with the Falcons.
