I have an answer to the Brett Favre question what we're hearing reports about whether quarterback star -- will retire.
But before you get to the farm news former colts coach Tony Dungy has big news of his -- his new book that mentioned leader is out in stores today.
Coach dungy joins us live good evening coach and I have to stay I was one thing we -- give a shout out to Alan Truman.
Yes we do Alan was guy who went to my high schools a little bit ahead of me.
And -- did some special things for me when I was those 1213 year old kid trying to find my way.
And I'm I'm sure I wouldn't be here talking to you today it -- -- for people like Alan especially.
We write about him in your book and I read all -- know with a wonderful advice as soon and they have for everybody and everyone knows you've done an awful lot for others.
But it's sort of interesting that the one thing the other struck me in the book is that a guy -- two and -- pride people and that -- is probably heard about except for his good -- his neighbors and people back home.
Is and how he changed your life.
And I think that's the point of the book that you think of leaders and we thank you the president the united states of the president of General Motors but you can have an impact anywhere you are and this is a little small towns Jackson miss again.
And a guy who.
Who had an impact on the on someone whom you know and nobody knew my name when I was twelve years old and now they do they -- -- that the Super Bowl winning coach.
But you know at that time I was just another twelve year old and and that is the important thing about it that.
You can have an impact anywhere and you -- are gonna have an impact either positively or negatively.
Think how much fun it is for him I mean he didn't have to do they -- -- to do those things for you.
He took the time to do what is a young guy couple years -- -- the New York.
And think about the -- I guess maybe that's why maybe of the pleasure you get helping others but they go -- much fun it is for him.
As he watched your success wondering if -- ever even remembered who he was as he watched you had tea when that super ball -- they got excited it is for him.
Well I've had that sense to have him come to some of our games are still talk a moment on the telephone.
And to be able say thanks and how much I appreciated.
And the way I can say thanks is to go back and try to do the same thing try to minter.
Other young men and give them advice and give them a helping hand.
Because someone did it for me.
Right now the book is the manager leader and it actually is -- how to explain how you can meant to people all the successful things that you've done received.
-- against lots a quote some people but I'm curious.
How do you inspire our help.
The unwilling to the person who we just yeah I -- -- just -- -- unwilling to do so from south.
You really can you try and you don't give up but that person has the except help.
And that's when things I was talk about what -- -- that.
As a rookie player you've got to be willing to listen to the veterans you've got to be willing to watch them you can't come in with the idea that you know what all you've got all the answers.
Otherwise we're not going to be a good thing and that happens you have some rookies that.
Aren't going to listen and they use they don't last very long.
I imagine heard all -- sort of chatter today it's not been confirmed about what Brett Favre of course -- for our team that you the amendment that connected with over the years Minnesota Vikings.
Heard that we we don't know if it's official or not we've had -- unofficial announcements in the past but.
Tonight how how hard you think it is for him to possibly walk away from the -- and they love you did it.
But it's difficult I did it I also thought about it for three or four years before it happened I wasn't public and -- this -- -- making him back and forth like Brett.
This has been and not in the spotlight.
But it's hard you don't know -- is the right time.
Will say this though Greta I wouldn't go in the morning if -- you too soon.
Until I hear from Brett Favre himself.
I -- worry about about the sources -- -- have a lot of friends in the viking organization and they haven't heard from him.
Himself so I think is still speculation.
I and I agree we never know it -- in terms -- for you when you walked away from my football and you let me -- grand jury you've done so much to people -- -- -- -- -- -- Was it hard.
It was very hard because that's been your life that's been what you've done that's where all your friends are I had 53 guys who were like family to me those players six thing coaches.
And then to saves us all the sudden I'm not gonna do that anymore.
It's difficult but I had other things that I was looking forward to doing not but I was retiring to some thing and not away from football so that that helped me.
But could have -- and you successive.
As a coach but I admire you for so much more they've done post coaching and everybody knows about it -- read this book to find -- so much more but.
Coach thank you -- will authority comeback for the next book.
All right thank you very much -- always great been -- with the nice to see it.
