Dungy Offically coming back

DUNGY COMING BACK FOR 2007

Colts coach Tony Dungy said Monday that he'll be back for another season with the team. Moving forward, however, it seems clear that Dungy is committed to taking his career one year at a time.

"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. "I wouldn't say it was an easy decision, but it was the right one, and it didn't take overly long to make."

So if it wasn't an easy decision this year, it presumably won't be an easy decision next year, or the year thereafter. And that's just enough to make Dungy the Bill Cowher of 2007, with constant speculation and rumor as to whether Dungy will pack it in after the year after finally scaling successfully the NFL mountain.

I think he almost had to...they have the majority of their players coming back, how could you leave that?

Speculation was b/c of his family situation and the fact that he said he did not want to coach past 50 and he is 51 and finally won, it was time to go out on top

From what I heard of him talking every time since the Super Bowl I never doubted for a second that he would come back for another year. I hope he stays in the league for many more years personally, just a great guy to have around.

SOOOOOO glad he came back for another year. I hope for the league and fan's sakes that he sticks around for years to come. However, I wouldn't blame him one bit for hanging it up whenever he feels comfortable with leaving.

Tony eventually wants to be a Minister here in Tampa so although he is coming back, i wouldn't put it past him to retire in a couple years

The NFL certainly needs quality individuals like Tony Dungy. Great to hear he's coming back to Indy for a chance at a repeat. Pac Man Jones could likely use an intervention from a guy like Dungy.

I'm not at all surprised by this. He has every reason to come back. Has a good chance at repeating for the SuperBowl, imo.
