Tony Dungy has retired from coaching and is embarking on new endeavors. Dungy was head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1996 to 2001. Dungy was at the helm of the Buccaneers when they changed their course from one of the worst teams in the NFL to true contenders. After leaving the Buccaneers Dungy continued to have winning seasons in his new head coaching job with the Indianapolis Colts. Although he may have left his position in Tampa Bay, Dungy continues to call the area home by keeping a home in the area.
His retirement is not forced, but is from his desire to spend more time with his family and work on some other passions that he has in his life. He has said that once he retires from his coaching position with the Indianapolis Colts that he would not be returning to NFL as a coach. Although we know is known for being a man of his word, I am sure so teams would not mind if he changed his mind.
