Tony Dungy's Name Surfaces In Ole Miss Coaching Search For Some Reason

In today's edition of wild, out of nowhere coaching rumors, Tony Dungy's name was floated as a possible replacement for Houston Nutt at Ole Miss.

As a reminder, Dungy has been out of coaching since 2008 and has never coached at the college level. While there is a loose connection here -- Archie Manning is the father of Peyton Manning, who played under Dungy with the Colts -- there's little more than that. He has no connections to the state, nor has he shown any indication he's open to a return to coaching.

So take that as you will and prepare for plenty of swirling rumors as the Ole Miss coaching search ramps up in earnest over the course of the next few weeks.
