The future of Colts head coach Tony Dungy is expected to come within the next 24 hours according to ESPN. The Colts coach said that he was going to take some time once the season ended to make a decision on if he would or would not come back to coach the team next year, and apparently that decision has been reached.
If Dungy does not come back, the teams associate head coach, Jim Calwell, will be the teams next head coach. That was decided upon before last season began when many felt that Dungy would hang it up. Dungy and the Colts season ended last weekend with a playoff loss to the Chargers.
Dungy has been a head coach since he took over the Tampa Bay Bucs back in 1996, and coached there for six seasons before being fired. The Colts snatched him up right away, and he’s been with them since the 2002 season, and has led them to a 85-28 record, 7-6 in the postseason. He has led the Colts to the playoffs each season as head coach, and the team won the Super Bowl, beating the Bears three seasons ago in Super Bowl XLI.
