Indianapolis, In.--After taking a week to consider his future following a loss to the Chargers in the divisional round of the playoffs, Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy decided that he would return for a sixth season with the club and 12th as an NFL head coach.
Speculation had run rampant in NFL circles that Dungy might retire to spend more time with his family, which had recently moved back to Tampa, where Dungy coached from 1996-2001.
A former NFL safety, Dungy became the 35th coach in league history to win 100 games as a coach in 2005 and led the Colts to a 13-3 mark this season. Overall, Dungy has compiled a 127-65 coaching mark and a 9-9 record in the postseason.
