On Monday, FOX’s Chris Myers reported that the Buccaneers could be contemplating an effort to hire former coach Tony Dungy to help turn around a ship that is quickly sinking toward an 0-16 record.
On Tuesday, Dungy said he’s not interested.
Said Dungy, in a statement released by NBC Sports: “I have had no contact with the Bucs and have no interest in doing anything other than what I am doing” on NBC’s Football Night In America.
“I love working for NBC Sports and my goal right now is to get better at my new job,” Dungy said.
Dungy coached the Bucs from 1996 through 2001. He then was surprisingly fired, and he was hired by the Colts, where he won a Super Bowl to cap the 2006 season. He retired after the 2008 season, and he has said he has no intention to return to coaching.
