Patriots‘ wide receivers coach.” data-reactid=”13″>O’Shea seemed like a logical fit on head coach Brian Flores’ staff, considering he spent the previous 11 years with Flores as the Patriots’ wide receivers coach.

So, why did Flores ditch O’Shea after just 16 games, especially with Miami’s offense averaging 28.6 points over its final five contests?
