Tony Dungy is a great example of how success in professional sports doesn't have to come with the 5,000-ton ego.

Every professional athlete should take their cue from Dungy.

Tony Dungy seems like a genuinely good guy. So few of them in professional sports so ya, that sucks.

A couple of weeks ago he signalled that he wanted to parent more and work with disadvantaged youth.

Blessings to the man.

Google “Class Act.” There is a picture of him there.

Rats. Tony was the only reason I rooted for Tampa Bay, then Indianapolis.

I've lost most reasons to root for any pro team. Go Boise State!

A terrific guy, by all accounts.

How’s Peyton going to manage going one and done in the playoffs with Dungy gone? Now he probably won’t even make it back to the playoffs to get tossed out in his first game anymore.

Born and raised in Michigan...it would be great for Dungy to go home and resurrect the Detroit Lions. He’s probably the only guy that can do it...maybe as the General Manager, which they desperately need.

Dungy is a great person and man of faith. Some of the local Indy hack writers (notably Kravitz) got on him as an “underachiever.”

Hey, after coaches like Kush, Infante, Meyer and some other lovable and not so lovable losers, as a Colts fan I’ll take Dungy’s style of “underachieving” any day.

I hope his successor can be as successful. I doubt it; the Colts need some serious upgrades, mainly on the O-Line. But we still have a Hall of Fame QB who is still in his prime.

I remember the superbowl win and how when Tony Dungy started the interview, one of the first things out of his mouth was his priase for god and his faith.
The reporters got all upset and then they kept trying to spin it about race and Tony being a “black coach who won the superbowl”, but he kept shutting them down and refusing to promote EPSN and the MSM agenda of 24/7 black victimization. Bravo Tony. Total class act.
