Tony Dungy has decided retirement will have to wait.
Tony Dungy is coming back for another season with the Super Bowl champs. Dungy made it clear Monday that he will return to the Indianapolis Colts sideline, quashing any talk that he might step down after becoming the first black coach to win a Super Bowl ring. “Obviously, you want to come back. You want to defend the title. We’ve got such a great group of guys, that that’s eventually what draws you back every year,” Dungy said in advance of the NFL Scouting Combine. “I wouldn’t say it was an easy decision, but it was the right one, and it didn’t take overly long to make.”
While there had been speculation concerning Dungy’s return for the 2007 season, the suspense didn’t trouble team president Bill Polian. “I wasn’t terribly concerned,” he said.
And with that out of the way, the Colts can focus on next season.
Indeed. While one couldn’t blame Dungy for wanting a break after all he’s been through, he’s got a great situation with the Colts. Not only is his team intact but so is his coaching staff. They’ll be favorites to return to the AFC Championship game next year.
