The New York Giants are the latest to address the allegations made by former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores.

In a statement from the franchise, the Giants addressed Flores’ allegations that the team hired new head coach Brian Daboll before interviewing Flores and that Bill Belichick had no idea who the Giants were set to hire.

Flores used lawsuits from Belichick in his lawsuit against the league in an effort to show Belichick may have known Daboll would be hired before he was even interviewed. The lawsuit also says the league’s hiring practices are racist.

The Giants adamantly deny all of the claims.

“After we interviewed six exceptional and diverse candidates, the decision on who we would hire as head coach was made on the evening of January 28, one day after Mr. Flores spent an entire day in our offices going through his second interview for the position, meeting with ownership and other staff members, and receiving a tour of our facility,” the team said in a statement.

“The allegation that the Giants’ decision had been made prior to Friday evening, January 28, is false. And to base that allegation on a text exchange with Bill Belichick in which he ultimately states that he ‘thinks’ Brian Daboll would get the job is irresponsible. The text exchange occurred the day before Coach Daboll’s in-person interview even took place. Giants’ ownership would never hire a head coach based only on a 20-minute zoom interview, which is all that Mr. Daboll had at that point.”

The Giants also reminded everyone that Belichick has no influence or insight on the decision the franchise makes.
