1) He's retiring, not getting fired. Article says he's been considering this for several seasons.
2) The article mentions that he's black only once, saying "highlighted by him becoming the first black coach to win a Super Bowl". There's nothing being dragged about in that, and, in fact, is quite an accomplishment to be proud of.

OK, really, just WTF are you thinking? "not bring much change" is the absolute best thing that could happen to that team in this situation.
I think he's just come to the conclusion that he's ridden the football train as far as he feels he needs to and he wants to do something else with his life. I congratulate him on being in a position that he can just do that.

derFunkenstein wrote:Heck, even this year, the game they lost went into OT against a Chargers team that was every bit as hot as Indy was the last chunk of the season. It's not like they're going in there and getting blown out. Dungy is the franchise's winning-est coach. I don't see how you can be glad he's gone.
