Dungy gives insight on Manning’s future

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Peyton Manning is sitting on top of the world. The former Colts quarterback won his second Super Bowl on Sunday night as the Broncos beat the Panthers.

The big question now is did Manning play his final game of his career?

WISH-TV connected with former Colts coach Tony Dungy on Monday night.

Manning and Dungy have a close relationship. They won Super Bowl 41 together down in Miami against the Bears.

Dungy told WISH-TV he doesn’t have a gut feeling one way or the other if Manning is going to retire. But the former coach, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, did share what it was like watching Manning win his second Super Bowl and what Manning told him after the game.

“To see them win it and win his second Super Bowl, it was just great,” Dungy said. “I had a conversation with him a week ago Saturday and they had just finished a big part of their preparation, he felt good about it (the Super Bowl), and we just talked about staying in the moment and not worrying about what’s going to happen after the game, what his future might hold but to enjoy this whole journey and then take a couple of weeks to decide what he wants to do. And it was just so great to see him after the game with his son Marshall there and just saying, you know, ‘I’m going to enjoy this with the kids and enjoy a second Super Bowl victory.’ And I’m very very happy for him.”
