Dungy: Nothing has Changed: Tony Dungy will coach at least one more year in Indianapolis.

Tony dungy has been a symbol of class in a league that tends to marginalize it. Im not a fan of the colts, but i always root for this mans success. I dont know what will happen to the colts whenever he does leave, but the league will certainly miss him. For now i celebrate the fact that i get to appreciate the quiet dignity he brings to the league, for another year, even if i do so while rooting against his team.

That's absolutely correct. There isn't a classier act in all of football, or probably any other sport for that matter. He will be sorely missed when he does go. With that said, I think Jim Caldwell will make a good replacement for him when he does leave. He is a very good coach as well.

Letís not forget the personal loses and sacrifices Dungy has suffered for his team...

Jim Caldwell is all set to take over the reins as soon as Dungy decides to give them up.Not only is Dungy a class act,but Caldwell also seems dedicated to wait until that happens.Both are classy guys,and not many such as Caldwell to sit and wait until a head coach waits and decides his fate with the team as the head coach.

One more year, if that's the case, is fine, for I agree Dungy is a classy guy. I still think a man of his caliber, demeanor, and intelligence, has much more to offer to both his family and other possible endeavors in society than he can achieve by coaching a bunch of millionaires in a game. The financial benefits would be much different, and the notoriety almost non-existent, but I honestly think his true calling is to come when he leaves football.
