Hall of Fame NFL coach Tony Dungy sat down with USA TODAY Sports this week and said that the national anthem is not the time for players to protest and voice their concerns. This is similar to what the Hall of Fame Coach told the Sports Junkies this week. Coach Dungy said that if he were still coaching, the best way for his players’ voices to be heard would be via a national press conference, which he argued would give them more attention anyway.
Coach Dungy also weighed in on former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The Hall of Fame Coach said he would be surprised to see Kaepernick back in the NFL, as Dungy feels Colin Kaepernick’s risk for an owner would outweigh what the young quarterback could potentially bring to a team. This was very evident when the Baltimore Ravens wanted to sign the former 49ers QB.
