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. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
