The Indianapolis Colts' season came to an end last night with an overtime loss to the Chargers, so now the beat goes on with the inevitable retirement talks for their coach. Just as has been the case in the past few seasons, Tony Dungy is initially unsure if he's returning to the team.

"For me, it will be kind of like every year at this time,"

"I'll try to get over the disappointment of this loss, talk things over with my wife, and see where we go from here."

Dungy has coached the Colts for the past seven years, putting together a sparkling resume. He took over the team from Jim Mora when the dust was settling from the playoffs? are you kidding me? playoffs? season.

The Colts made those playoffs in each of Dungy's seven seasons, and his worst record was 10-6 (his first season). They have won at least 12 games in the past six campaigns. He brought Indianapolis their first Super Bowl championship, and has a current 10-year string of consecutive playoff appearances as a head coach (he took the Bucs to three in a row before coming to Indy).
