09:29 AM ET 07.10 | Someone asked Tony Dungy during a visit to Indianapolis: Does he miss coaching football? Would he consider coaching again? No, Dungy said flatly. "I feel very fulfilled and rewarded," he said. "And I do realize that there is life after football."

FN must have come under new management. These silly, non, stories usually start with a question: Will....Should....But never a definitive statement.

If he feels content with his life, why would he want to change it? He's given the game plenty and he still has a TV gig. He doesn't need to go back.

He doesn't have the time anyway. He's going to busy explaining how Vick deserves a third chance.

Good for him - It's time for family and TV now. :)

He's is one of the rare cases where the NFL was luckier to have him than he was in having the NFL. Best of luck, Tony.

Dungy won the super bowl and is now content to live a slower paced life as an analyst still making good money and enjoying his family. I am truly envious and happy for him.

Personally, the level of commitment and time that goes must go into coaching on that level I could never do. I like my family life too much for that.

Tony personifies class with character. The man is very busy with his ministry work. Most of which is spent in prisons discussing choices to them and how it affects their life and those close to them.

Dear Mr. Dungy,

Please feel free to spend as much time as you can around your son Eric and his new team...

He did personify class with character -- until he became the head cheerleader for a sociopathic, animal-torturing, pathological liar.
