Dungy says Weis could be good fit for Colts

So could former Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis be headed for Indianapolis?

Well, on some level it makes at least a little bit of sense. Tom Moore, the Colts’ long-time offensive coordinator, has long qualified for his AARP card and is now working as a consultant on a year-to-year basis.

If Moore decides to head to the beaches of south Florida, no one could blame him. He already has his Super Bowl ring, and another one this season could certainly send him packing.

And while Weis didn’t exactly get a passing grade as a head college football coach, no one is doubting his abilities as an offensive coordinator at the pro level. He certainly had solid results in New England.

Former Colts coach Tony Dungy thinks it’d be a good fit. And not just because Weis is a master of Xs and Os.

“I’m sure the Colts would like to tweak the Patriots that way,” Dungy said on NBC last Sunday.

The Colts have nothing to say about Dungy's comment or Weis' future.

In an ironic twist, Dungy is reportedly on Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick's short list to replace Weis.

Now that hire, just a year after Dungy's retirement from Indianapolis, might tweak Colts owner Jim Irsay.

    Good one, Indyman!

    If he's on the end of the bench, it's definitely tipping his weigh......
  • NOT an offensive genius

    I AM! He was in the right place in the right time. And the Pats had, I believe, even better offenses AFTER Charlie left--maybe you could check on this since you are a sports columnist. His results at ND did not show him to be an offensive genius, more like an offensive dufus. Even this year with Clausen and Tate they didn't score that many points, and couldn't even manage to put up enough points to beat middling teams. If the Colts hired him I would have to disown the Colts.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
