He Coached our team with dignity and grace, and when he chose to leave he did it the same way. Tony Dungy, coach of the Indianapolis Colts announced yesterday that he will step down as head coach effective immediately. He did so with tears in his eyes, showing just how much affection he has had for the boys in Indianapolis.
Beginning next season our new head coach will be Jim Caldwell, who has been with Dungy for nearly eight years as part of the coaching staff at Indianapolis and knows the team really well. He has been carefully groomed for the job.
He has really big shoes to fill, but he has learned from one of the best. And I may be biased but even with the really rocky season we had this year, he had a great group of guys playing for him.
