Coach Flowers has over 17 years of coaching experience as a Head Football Coach and Offensive Coordinator on both the college and high school levels. A native of South Bend, Indiana, Flowers has lived and coached all over the country. He spent the early part of his career coaching in the heart of Texas, a place many people feel is the very heartbeat of high school football. He has also led winning teams in North Carolina and South Carolina.

In his career he has coached in some of the biggest games these three football states can play...from playoffs all the way to the State Championship game. In his second year on the collegieate level he coached, and won, a college bowl game in which his true Freshman QB won MVP honors.

His transition from high school to college was seamless; his college-level quarterbacks flourished under his teaching and supervision, just as his high school players did. In Flowers’ first season as a collegiate coach, Senior QB Ryan Carter led the CIAA in Passing and Total Yards; Carter was previously not ranked in the top 10 for the conference. In 2011, Freshman QB Kean Wallace was selected as the CIAA Rookie of the Year. In 2012, his first season with Coach Flowers, QB James Stallons broke more than 10 Shaw University passing records while the offense was #1 in Passing.  Flowers has a seasoned eye for talent, he has successfully recruited players from all over the country, some of whom can't truly be called recruits because they sought him out hoping for a chance to play for a "Quarterback Whisperer".

During his tenure at Chester High School, Coach Flowers focused on establishing the Cyclones as one of the rising powers in South Carolina football. The Cyclones won a Region Championship, made a State Championship appearance and spent the majority of the 2009 season ranked as the #1 3A team in the South Carolina Associated Press Polls. Prior to these accomplishments, Coach Flowers led Olympic High School to five playoff appearances in six years, finishing his last season with a 10-3 record which tied for the most wins in a season in the school's history. In 2007, he coached the Associated Press North Carolina Player of the Year as Head Football Coach at West Charlotte High School. In his short time as a Head Coach, Coach Flowers has coached several Shrine Bowl players including, two Quarterbacks, a Wide Receiver, an Offensive Lineman and a Linebacker. He’s also coached an East-West All-Star Quarterback, a North-South All-Star Offensive Lineman, and a North-South All-Star Wide Receiver. Coach Flowers is best known in coaching circles as a coach that cares about his players’ futures. While at Olympic High School over 30 of his players received college scholarships, and in his one year at West Charlotte High School he had 11 players to receive scholarships.  His players have gone on to do well in the college arena and beyond. Former player Mark Clayton, former starting Wide Receiver of the St. Louis Rams – #89, says that “Coach Flowers did so much to help me get where I am today.  He’s the kind of coach players love to play for.” Coach Flowers is also a sought out public speaker, his most recent speaking engagement was the 2013 American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) National Convention where he presented "QB Play and Fundamentals" to a national audience of high school and college coaches. His article "High Percentage Run-Pass Options, When There Is No Options" was recently published in the April 2013 edition of American Football Monthly/Grid Iron Strategies magazine.

Coach Flowers attended East Mecklenburg High School where he was All-Conference in football and basketball as a junior and senior. Coach Flowers is a graduate of Johnson C. Smith University, where he was team captain and named College Football Preview Magazine All-American Quarterback for three years in a row, 1988-90.  He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and is currently pursuing his Masters in Health Education at East Carolina University.  He and his wife Tonya have three daughters, Madison and Meghan are both outstanding student-athletes in their own right, and new addition Tomi Nicole has a few more years before she enters competitive sports.
