Report: Frazier told Seahawks he'd bring Dungy

On Saturday, Charley Casserly of CBS reported that former Bucs and Colts coach Tony Dungy would have hired Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier to coach the Seahawks, if Dungy had accepted Seattle’s offer to become president of the team.

On Sunday, Jay Glazer of FOX reported that Frazier was telling Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke during last weekend’s interview that Frazier could get Dungy to come with him to Seattle.

In the end, Dungy opted not to join the Seahawks and the Seahawks opted not to hire Frazier. 

Moving forward, however, it makes sense to keep a close eye on the possibility for a Dungy-Frazier team in some other NFL city.

  1. Frazier should’ve tried to sell himself to the Seahawks and not try to sell the relationship he has w/ Dungy.

  2. Another Dumb non-story.. do you people not get it?? Dungy is DONE COACHING… hello McFly.. anyone home? The dude didn’t leave Peyton Manning and the Colts to go Coach the Seahawks..didn’t leave so he could coach with a “black man” umm duh.. Jim Caldwell was on his staff .. wasn’t like he never coached with blacks before.. but I’m sure you people will still put his name in there again… especially if maybe Webster or Steve Urkel need a Coach…

    FYI – The “coming out” for Dungy was reported to be as President of Football OPS or GM, not as a coach………..Just seen the live report on FOX.

  4. err….MF called it correctly above, the report was for Frazier to be able to bring Dungy to Seattle as President with Leslie as HC.

  5. Sounds to me like someone is going to bypasss the Looney Rule
    But to be expected that Dungheap writes his own rules
    Get the two of together they can have the dog killer as the QB the scum hit and run killer as a wide out and wait maybe get Plex out as well
    Perfect start of a expansion team for LA the LA Thugs

  7. WOW…
    I thought this was PFT.com…not I_Hate_TonyDungy&the_RooneyRule.com
    You kids play nice now…lol

  8. how is this racism allowed… If Mike Holmgren said”Hire me and I’ll bring along Mike Martz as head coach”,Whiny minorites wouldve had a field day with this. It seems,as is the case with “real jobs”also, it’s no longer who is best or most qualified;it’s about are they black/muslim/hispanic,etc..

  9. Tony and Leslie,
    Please come to Buffalo! We are in desperate need of your wisdom and vision for our team!!
    Signed,
