Tony Dungy says he’s not interested in coaching jobs, weighs in on Big Ben, Tebow
Dan asked Dungy if he would be interested in a vacancy in Philadelphia down the road if they moved on from Andy Reid. Dungy said there’s no scenario where he becomes a head coach again.
“None,” Dungy said. “Any team, any amount of money. … Not for the next three years. After that I’ll be 60 and I’ll be too old.”
Dungy said that he thinks Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wants to throw the ball 50 times a game.
“He really feels he’s their best chance to win,” Dungy said. “Especially with their offensive line and their running backs banged up.”
But Dungy said the coaching staff has to convince Ben they need the running game. “You have to be balanced to win,” Dungy said. “You can’t be all pass and win. “
Dungy weighed in on Tim Tebow and the Jets. He thinks they like it. “If it wasn’t Tim Tebow, people would say this is a pretty good plan,” Dungy said.
Dungy said that he sent letters to both presidential candidates about emphasizing families. Meaning that there are families out there struggling and they can’t forget that.
