The commissioner also pledged an investigation into tanking allegations raised by Brian Flores in his discrimination lawsuit against the NFL. Goodell wrote in a memo to the league’s 32 clubs that the NFL’s record on hiring minority coaches has been “unacceptable.” Flores, who is Black, was fired by the Miami Dolphins after back-to-back winning seasons. He filed a class-action lawsuit this week alleging unfair hiring practices that names the league and the Dolphins, Denver Broncos and New York Giants.
