Flanagan won the AL Cy Young award in 1979, posting a 23-9 record with a 3.08 ERA. He has been involved with the Orioles in numerous capacities since his retirement as a player: coach, front office executive and broadcaster. He's currently the color commentator for Orioles games on Mid-Atlantic Sports Network.

Flanagan was also a teammate of Julius Erving on the UMass basketball team.
