Tony Dungy says he would not work for Washington Redskins owner


The Washington Redskins may decide to part ways with head coach Mike Shanahan at season end, but if they do, they don’t need to waste their time contacting Tony Dungy as the former NFL head coach says he would not work under owner Daniel Snyder.

Dungy, who currently is an analyst for Sunday Night Football on NBC has no reason to leave his cushy gig, but if he did want to return to the NFL coaching ranks he wouldn’t be doing so with the Redskins, as long as Snyder is there as he recently told Dan Patrick:

“Would you want to work for him? For Daniel Snyder?” Patrick asked.

“No, no,” Dungy said. “When you’re interviewing coaches for the job, and you haven’t told me I’ve lost the job yet? No, I would NOT want to work for him.”

Dungy’s reluctance to work for Snyder and well understood considering how hot tempered Snyder can be, not to mention the pressures put on the head coach.

Dungy last coached in the NFL during the 2008 season.

    Since Tony Dungy is retired and doing well as an analyst, he can pick and choose which owner he works for. But an up and coming coach looking for a opportunity, or a retread head coach who was fired and wants another shot, I think would be more apt to look past that history with Daniel Snyder.
