He is my number one choice for our next head coach. The Panthers should do what ever it takes to convince Dungy to coach again. He seems like he would be a perfect fit for Cam. He would have plenty of players to build around and has the wisdom and football knowledge to change the culture of this organization.

I see so many names thrown around for potential coaches and never really see Dungy mentioned. Maybe it is because he will never coach again but that that would not stop me from trying to convince him otherwise.

While I wouldn't mind it, I think Dungy's retired for good.

If Tony Dungy's not retired for good the one positive thing the Panthers have going for them is they have a franchise quarterback in Cam Newton.. This should appeal to him big time.

I realize Cam’s not having a good season, but he is a great talent.Give him a little better supporting cast and some stable coaching, and the Panthers are winners.

Overrated coach. Couldn't get it done in Tampa Bay & rode Peyton Manning's coat tail in Indy.

Tony Dungy, by all accounts, is an amazing individual & great man. But he's overrated as a coach.

You're quite welcome.

Sorry, I think Tony D is a great guy and was a pretty good coach, but he's been out of the league long enough he likely could never get his groove back as an HC. The game has passed him by and I sincerely don't believe his heart is in it anymore.

This post is laughable. Tell me Peyton's record in the playoffs in Indy before Tony was his coach. Jets used to kick Peyton's ass every year! What was Tampa's record the previous years before he came down there?

People say Gruden only won thanks to Dungy's team which is why it all went downhill after the super bowl. Also if Dungy had a defense in indy he would have won more than 1 super bowl.

It would not upset me to see Dungy coaching here - but I would worry that he's been out of it too long and I'm not so sure I'd be a huge fan of the defense he'd probably want to use.

Either way he's probably retired for good. won't happen.

Would be an amazing choice and Carolina would be VERY lucky to have him.


That said... he won't be our next coach.

Its rare for any coach to have success with two different teams. Vermeil did it, winning a sb with the Cardinals and getting to it with the Eagles. I can't think of anybody else.

Fwiw, I am not sure he has the desire anymore.

Also, Dungy would be just as intrigued by Luke as Cam if not more so.

If he were looking for a coaching job I would be happy with him, but he seems retired to me, that being said, he may be out of touch with today's NFL player
