Could Tony Dungy replace Tim Brewster?

Tim Brewster is still the head coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers.  Why?  Well, we don't really know to be completely honest with you.  The Gophers have done nothing this season under Brewster to warrant him keeping his job, and there's not much reason to believe things are going to change this year or in the future.

Brewster's in his fourth season at Minnesota and he's currently the not-so-proud owner of a 17-33 record (8-24 in the Big Ten).  Considering that the man Brewster took over for, Glen Mason, went 64-57 at Minnesota and only had one losing season in his last five years before he got canned, you would think patience would be wearing thin with Brewster.

Especially because the school just spent a lot of money on a new stadium, and they'd probably like a home team that can win there once in a while.

If Minnesota ever does go ahead and relieve Brewster of his duties, some folks in Minneapolis already know whom they'd like to see the school go after: Tony Dungy.

People close to Dungy, who coached the Indianapolis Colts to a Super Bowl championship, feel he would be more inclined toward the NFL than college if he were to try coaching again.

But Dungy is different than most big-time coaches, and has a special affinity for his alma mater. A $5 million annual contract from a NFL team might not be as important to Dungy as the challenge to make his alma mater relevant in football.

I'm not so sure that restoring the honor of the ol' alma mater actually outweighs a $5 million salary, though it's true, Tony Dungy is a bit different than most head coaches.  Maybe now that he's won a Super Bowl and has spent the last year and a half working on television, he could see coaching in college as his next challenge.

That being said, Dungy has turned down the chance to coach at Minnesota before, as the school asked him about the job before they eventually hired Brewster.

you sound like a very sad pitiful little man. Tony Dungy hasn't even sought out the job but you find it in your small miserable mind to take shots at successful righteous faith filled man. It would not be a bad thing for some on college football teams to praise something other than themselves. It would probably help you too, should you choose to drop the anger and perhaps seek something better. Just saying.

No he doesn't want to have to recruit and why would you move from tampa to minnesota after you've already won a super bowl and can stay retired.

MrMcLarge, it is obvious where his hate comes from. He is, obviously, a child of the evil one and can't bear the thought that a righteous man would enjoy the success that Tony Dungy has experienced. The best part is Dungy will not shut up or go away. He is admired because he is good and does things the way they should be done. He is a role model because of his faith, and will remain an example for how coaching should be done long after he is gone. I love it that he gets under the skin of hateful people like this clown.

I never understood why Minnesota fired Glen Mason.  Made no sense at all.  Especially by then hiring Brewster.  What had he ever accomplished?  I think his days are short.  I doubt very much that Tony Dungy will be interested.

He is a very loyal guy, and loves his alma mater.   Stranger things have happened.   Bringing the Gophers back to respectability, might be a feather in his cap he may want.  We'll see?

Wow. Where is the hate for Dungy coming from? How could you dislike such a good, respectable man especially when the NFL abounds with less than desirable role models?
