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.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
