In a lawsuit filed Tuesday that’s rocking the NFL, former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores says racism against fellow Black head coaches is pervasive in the league. Flores also claims leadership of the Denver Broncos engaged in racism in what he says was a “sham interview” with Broncos executives Joe Ellis and John Elway in 2019. That was the year the Broncos hired former head coach Vic Fangio. Broncos former offensive tackle and Super Bowl champion Ryan Harris offers his perspective on the lawsuit and what it might mean for the upcoming sale of the Broncos.
