Mizzou Football Camp: Tony Dungy Influence Being Felt

I didn't realize Tony Dungy was such an influence on the Missouri Tigers defensive attack. Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune has a very interesting article on Mizzou's defense and the influence of Dungy.

Here are a few samplings from Matter's story.

Defensive coordinator Dave Steckel:

Dungy used to always say, ‘We’re going to do what we do, but we’re going to do it better. That’s what we have to do.”

Cornerbacks coach Cornell Ford:

“Tony Dungy used to say, ‘Sometimes your players don’t get it the first year, but the second and third year, man, they should be rolling pretty quick with it."

We'll defer to Matter for the detailss but it's a good read on some history of Mizzou's defense.
