He's the winningest coach in franchise history if I'm not too much mistaken, and he'll always be loved in Indianapolis for bringing us our first pro sports championship since the ABA Champion Pacers. He'll be missed, but at the same time it's probably time for a change.

Will naming a successor get Indy in trouble with the Rooney Rule? (I hope so.)

As long as there is language in Caldwell's contract guaranteeing him the head coaching job upon Dungy's retirement, the Rooney Rule doesn't apply.

Pretty sure there's no need for the Rooney Rule ...
