false reference rations?[edit]

Someone removed this reference, saying it's elsewhere in the article, but it's not: He and Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith will be the first African-American head coaches to reach the Super Bowl in NFL history.

Race is totally irrelevant. Please remove "African American" from the article. He is simply a coach who made it to and won the Super Bowl.

What I find unfortunate is that Tony Dungy does not find other personal qualities irrelevant. His recent comments regarding Michael Sam are truly unfortunate. If being an African American is irrelevant, then shouldn't being gay also be irrelevant? Would Dungy regard one as irrelevant and the other not so? (talk) 23:25, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Um on the page it has Tony and the Colts winning 2006 Super Bowl XLI no it should be saying 2007 Super Bowl XLI, and that they are still the reining champs. About the African American, i know the Colts and Tony. He IS the first African American to WIN the Super Bowl. In the future people can look back and say yeah i know him he was the FIRST African American to WIN. Yes it doesn't matter but we still need to inclose that information. And many others would very much approve if you could put that both tony and lovie were the first two African American head coaches to go to the Super Bowl. Thanks

Redundant coaching strategy?[edit]

I think the article on coaching strategy is mainly an explanation of the Tampa 2 defense. i think that part can be summarized and at the top you can put a big link for the Tampa 2 article although, there are plenty of links to it already. so even that might be redundant. does anyone agree with me and/or have different ideas?


I was hoping the article would tell me if his last name has a hard or soft G. Nareek (talk) 21:50, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Question about coaching philosophy[edit]

In this article about a non-football subject, there's a passing reference to Dungy that isn't well explained:

This research is also transforming our understanding of how habits function across organizations and societies. A football coach named Tony Dungy propelled one of the worst teams in the N.F.L. to the Super Bowl by focusing on how his players habitually reacted to on-field cues.

Putting aside the reference to the Colts as "one of the worst teams in the N.F.L." -- which I'd delete if it appeared in a Wikipedia article -- I'm curious about the description of Dungy's focus. Is there any accuracy to that passage? If so, it would be great if someone knowledgeable would add the information to the "Coaching philosophy" section. JamesMLane t c 21:09, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
