BIO

Tom Flores Oakland Raiders & Seattle Seahawks

"A total commitment is paramount to reaching the ultimate in performance."

Tom Flores began his coaching career after a decade as a quarterback with the Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, and Kanas City Chiefs (1960-69). He had stints as an assistant with the Buffalo Bills and then with the Raiders under Hall of Fame Coach John Madden winning Super Bowl XI. Flores earned his first head coaching gig in 1979 when he succeeded Madden with the Raiders.

Flores went 9-7 his first season and then 11-5 the following year when he led the team to Super Bowl XV where they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles. The ’81 team was the first Wild Card team to win a Super Bowl and made Flores the first minority head coach to win a world championship. In 1982, the team moved to Los Angeles and in the second year in its new home, Flores lead the Raiders to another Super Bowl championship. The team posted a 12-4 record in 1983 and capped the season with a dominating 38-9 win over the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XVIII. At the time, Flores’ two Super Bowl victories were the most of any coach other than Chuck Noll.

In nine seasons with the Raiders, Flores had a regular season record of 83-53 with five playoff berths and an 8-3 record in the postseason. He moved into the Raiders front office before accepting a position with the Seattle Seahawks as the president and general manager. In 1992, he returned to the sideline as head coach of the Seahawks where he spent the next three seasons.

After 12 years as a head coach, Flores ended his career with an overall record of 105-90-0 – a .538 winning percentage. Flores won 72.7% of the games he coached in the postseason. He was named AFC Coach of the Year by United Press International and the Football Writer’s Association in 1982.
