The Dungy Coaching Tree.
After you look at this, I hope you find yourself wondering as I do, WHY THE HELL DID THE GLAZERS FIRE TONY DUNGY.
We know the sugar coated answer, but what has Gruden done to keep his job? Congratulation to Coach Dungy, for taking his team to the Super Bowl "again". This is surely a day that Gruden never wanted to see. Because now we know that Gruden took Dungy’s Buccaneers to the Super Bowl, and Coach Dungy does have what it takes to get to the big game. It might be Gruden who does not have what it takes.
Anyway here it is the Tony Dungy Coaching Tree and it is impressive.
Lovie Smith, Head Coach of the Bears, and besides Dungy became the first of Dungy’s coaches to reach the Super Bowl,
Herm Edwards, Head Coach of the NY JETS and Chiefs
Rod Marinelli, Head Coach of the Lions
Most recently another Dungy disciple, Mike Tomlin, was named head coach of the Steelers.
Tomlin became the fourth new head coach to sprout from the coaching tree that was planted in Tampa, and one who has watched it grow couldn't hide his enthusiasm Monday.
