When Tony Dungy retired from the NFL, many people suspected there would always be a “pull” from outside or within to try to keep him close to the game.
A little more than three months after Dungy coached his final game for the Colts, he could return to the league in a different role.
Dungy has been approached by new NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, who’s interested in having the retired coach assume a role of liaison between the players and the NFL office.
Dungy tells me there has been initial contact between him and Smith, although “nothing substantive” has happened yet. More talks are expected.
