Default Tony Dungy Steps down as Head Coach

Well seems like it was bound to happen after all the speculation the past two seasons.

Colts Defense-TM-Colts Jan. 16 - 2:21 pm et

Citing a league source, Profootballtalk.com reports Colts coach Tony Dungy will step down and be replaced by assistant head coach Jim Caldwell.

Dungy isn't expected to make his decision official before next Monday, but most close to the situation have expected him to retire. Caldwell is highly regarded in the Colts' locker room, especially by Peyton Manning.

Good move if true. Caldwell was going to get a HC gig this season. At least Indy keeps him home and he'll probably bring back most of the staff.

Wonder if Cowher might change his mind about coming back.

Dungy was a good guy and a great influence on the NFL, sad to see him go.

I'm so sorry to see Tony go, but he made his mark in Indy and the entire NFL - great coach and a total class act (of course - he once wore the black & gold!). Good luck Tony - we're gonna miss you!

Cowher isn't going anywhere and especially not to Indy. That is even farther away from his new home than Pittsburgh was and wifey-poo would jack him up if he even considered it. Kaye wears the pants in that family, not The Chin.

If anything, this will reassure him that he made the right decision. I honestly don't look for Cowher to be back anytime soon, if ever.

Good for Dungy deciding it is time to go on his terms - i am glad Tony had success against the Pats last year & got a ring to go with his 78 Steelers ring - sometimes the good guys do win one
