Brian Flores – Miami Dolphins Coach, $2.5 Million Net Worth
In case you don’t know, Brian Flores, the Miami Dolphins’ coach, has become one of the most famous coaches in the NFL. However, unlike other beloved coaches, Flores never played professionally! Instead, he went straight from playing football at Boston College to becoming a scouting assistant for the New England Patriots. There, as an assistant coach with the Patriots, Flores helped them win three Super Bowls!
Eventually, in 2019, Flores traded the Patriot for the Dolphins, becoming the second former Bill Belichick assistant to be named Dolphins head coach, after Nick Saban. Under his leadership, the Dolphins finished the 2019 season with a 5-11 record. Hopefully, Flores can turn things around this year! He’s worth $2.5 million, though if he starts winning, expect that to grow!
Robert Kraft – New England Patriots’ Owner, $6.6 Billion Net Worth
Billionaire Robert Kraft is famous for being the Kraft Group CEO, a holding company with assets in newspapers, entertainment, real estate, and of course, sports. Of all of Kraft’s holdings, the most notable is the NFL team, the New England Patriots. However, many don’t know that he’s also the owner of the soccer team New England Revolution and the Gillette Stadium, where both teams play.
In 1994, Kraft shelled out a mere $172 million for the Patriots, the highest price ever paid for an NFL team at the time. Furthermore, Kraft said that his passion for the Patriots led him to “break every one of my financial rules” in his pursuit of the team. In fact, the businessman still keeps a New England poster in his office as a reminder of what drove him to buy his hometown team!
