Dungy returning to Colts

January 24, 2006


— Tony Dungy will be back to coach the Indianapolis Colts next season.

The Colts made the announcement Monday, a week after Dungy said he planned to take a break from football to decide his future.

"I was always coming back unless I said I wasn't," he said.

Dungy said after the team's 21-18 playoff loss to the Steelers on Jan. 15 that he planned to spend time with his family before making a decision.

Dungy said that he planned to return, but left open the possibility of retirement because of the death last month of his 18-year-old son, James.
