If you are the Detroit Lions, don't you have to make a call to Tony Dungy now?
The former Indianapolis Colts coach said on Monday that, while he isn't planning on coaching again, if he was going to return, it would be for the Detroit Lions job.
"I will tell you this Dan, I think the best job out there is the Detroit Lions," Dungy said on the syndicated radio program "The Dan Patrick Show." "That's the job I would want, I think they are the closest to the Super Bowl.
"You look for things, you look for a franchise quarterback in this day and age. You want to have a passing game, because this game is all about passing, and you want people who can rush the passer and protect the lead, Detroit's got all that.
"And the division, eight wins won the division this year, so you're in the right division and you have an owner that doesn't meddle."
The owner he is speaking of is named Bill Ford, and Mr. Ford, if you are reading this, pick up the phone, call Tony Dungy and ask, "What will it take to make you my head coach?"
