Video: Tony Dungy says no thanks to USC’s overtures

Tony Dungy AP

While he wasn’t exactly on the radar to begin with according to most observers, you can apparently cross him off the list as to who will be the next head coach at USC.

Speaking on the Dan Patrick Show Monday, former NFL head coach and current NBC Sports analyst Tony Dungy confirmed that “representatives” of USC had reached out to him/his agent in an attempt to gauge his interest in the jobs. ¬†Dungy, who has been out of coaching since 2008, stated that he had no interest in the Trojans job and highlighted his own lack of coaching experience at the collegiate level.

In fact, Dungy, whose son Eric is a junior wide receiver at Oregon, reiterated once again that he’s done with coaching, period.

    I think T. Dungy is a smart man. He doesn’t need to jump into the media circus that is USC.

    Relax USC fans, your biggest recent success came with a guy who was your 5th choice.

    Jimbo,
    I highly doubt Dungy was USC’s first choice. I am sure they were just gauging interest as I am sure they are doing with a few other coaches.

    The title of this article makes it seem as though USC begged him to coach there or even offered him the job. Very misleading.

    Somebody needs to ask Tony Dungy for names. Was it Pat Haden that contacted him? Or, was it a booster? ???

    I thought everybody knew by now that SABAN is coaching both Texas and USC next year.

    Who can blame him…who’d want to coach in front of a home crowd that is at 75% capacity?

    He’s so smart, Sc needs a college coach maybe he can be the athletic director to make decisions.
