    I say "yes." He's given too many false alarms in the past for this not to be real. Kids enrolled in Tampa schools. He's heading home. Backup coach Jim Caldwell most likely takes his spot. Since Caldwell is a minority Rooney rule makes it easy to promote him (i.e. no additional candidates need be interviewed.)

    I found it interesting that the assistant was talking to the Falcons about the HC job and all of a sudden he is not interested? I think that they know Dungy is leaving and want him to step in.

    His heart can't be in it if he has to go through this indecisiveness after every season. Time for Martin Luther Dungy to step down and enter the ministry.

    He will make his final decision after watching our game on this Sunday. I'm sure God will tell Colts spiritual leader that it is time to retire because Pats is the GREATEST team in NFL history.

    What is the best way to end somebody's career.!

    BB did that to the last Chargers' head coach last year.

    What is this Rooney rule people keep talking about? Something to do with minority coaches? Excuse my ignorance, but can someone explain this?

    Oh and I think he will not be stepping down. Next year will be his last though.

    You have to interview at least one minority coach before hiring a new head coach. Which means you can interview just one candidate that you ultimately hire provided he's a minority.
