INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay hopes to extend coach Tony Dungy's contract and would like to have a new deal completed before training camp opens in July.

"He can sign an extension tonight as far as I'm concerned," Irsay told The Indianapolis Star this week during the owners' meetings in Hawaii. "He certainly deserves one, sooner than most."

Dungy has two years left on the five-year, $13 million deal he signed in 2002.

He has led the Colts to the playoffs in each of his three seasons and had double-digit victory totals in all three years. Indianapolis has won the AFC South title the last two seasons and reached the AFC Championship game after the 2003 season. He is 37-17 overall with the Colts and ranks fourth in franchise history in victories.

"We've talked, but we have the type of relationship that Tony will coach here basically as long as he wants," Irsay said. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/football/nfl/03/24/bc.fbn.colts.dungy.ap/index.html

That is funny to hear absolutes from an NFL owner say about his head coach:

"we have the type of relationship that Tony will coach here basically as long as he wants,"

That is until the losses mount and start to hurt more......the owner changes his mind.....or sells the team.....moves the team.....whatever.

Does anyone else think that he and Grant Hill look alike?

Ha your right!

I hope the Colts do sign Dungy to an extension because although he is a good coach he'll just have a repeat of what he did with the Bucs.
