For the first time since being hired on Feb. 6, the team's new head coach addressed the media.



said Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is a winner despite former coach Brian Flores' claims that Ross offered Flores $100,000 for every loss in 2019.

 McDaniel said Thursday.

"I can honestly say there were no red flags," McDaniel said Thursday. "I was stepping into an organisation with a boss who I don't think people give proper credit to."


Miami is fortunate to have an owner who only cares about winning. That's all a coach needs.
