Chris Myers: Dungy Return Under ConsiderationOctober 13th, 2009
Chris Myers is a legitimate, reputable national broadcaster known to countless Bucs fans as the team’s play-by-play man on its preseason telecasts.
So it’s fair to say that Bucs fans should take great notice when Myers drops an absolute bombshell of a ramble like he did Monday on his daily FOX Sports Radio show.
Myers said Tony Dungy is a name under consideration for a job at One Buc Place that could be a consultant position, an assistant coaching job, or a Bill Parcells-type advisory role.
Myers said, “I did want to mention Tony Dungy’s name, and I don’t even know if Tony has been approached, has surfaced in Tampa as a possibility. …The team is winless. There is some concern about direction. Dungy might be a guy whether he is brought in as a consultant or an executive or to coach with Raheem Morris. It is something that is out there that is being talked about.”
Myers went on to say this is “a developing story,” and “these are things that are being discussed that you’re not going to hear a lot of places except here.”
Typically, Joe would dismiss this comment as typical baseless gossip in search of ratings and something to be expected from a California-based talking head like Myers.
However, these Dungy comments must be taken seriously because of Myers’ close ties with the Bucs.
No doubt Myers has superior sources inside the bowels of One Buc Palace. To be fair, it’s also reasonable to believe Myers has bad information.
But perhaps the Glazers have reached out to heal the wounds surrounding Dungy’s exit.
Perhaps the Glazers want help repairing their suspect college scouting department.
Perhaps the Glazers want a trustworthy advisor to help them craft the post-Mark Dominik-Raheem The Dream era.
Considering the state of the franchise, Dungy would be a welcome addition.
