MINNEAPOLIS (WBZ-AM) -- NBC Sports analyst Tony Dungy was a very successful coach with the Colts and Buccaneers. He's a Super Bowl champ and a hall-of-famer.
And he's been watching Patriots head coach Bill Belichick for a long time.
Belichick spent five mostly sub-par seasons in Cleveland before breathing new life into the Patriots to the tune of eight Super Bowl appearances in 18 years, five titles in counting, 15 division crowns, and 16 double-digit winning seasons.
Dungy told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Adam Kaufman that he is impressed by Belichick's longevity.
"What he's done is the longevity has been incredible," he said. "I coached total 13 years, and that was a long time for me. So to coach at that level for 17 years and to win five times and say you know what, I still want to come in tomorrow and be the best coach in the National Football League and I'm still as driven, that's pretty incredible."
Dungy also weighed in on how much longer Belichick would be with New England.
