Another interesting revelation came when an audience member asked if Dungy had the choice to have lunch with any person, who would he choose? Dungy’s answer: legendary basketball coach John Wooden and Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa. Dungy said he admires both men for what they’ve stood for and the courage they’ve shown through their convictions.
Colts fans breathed a sigh of relief when Dungy said this morning that Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is in solid physical shape and the team shouldn’t need to consider drafting a new franchise quarterback for at least five years.
Perhaps most importantly to Colts fans, Dungy said he couldn’t see himself coaching anywhere else besides Indianapolis or working for any other NFL owner besides Jim Irsay. And while he admitted that moving on to other things crosses his mind now and then, he said he still has some things to accomplish in football.
“Like hopefully win a few more Super Bowls,” Dungy said.
A few more Super Bowls! I guess that means we’ll see Coach Dungy at next year’s IBJ Power Breakfast.
