His career started out in Pittsburgh and kc, so he's versed in cowher and Marty defensive schemes. Wouldn't be surprised to see him shift to an entirely different defense.
And it's too soon to say what fox is doing with Peyton. He's played one season against a weak division.
What value did he provide? Again, we have seen so many teams quit on their coach or rebel against a hardass. Dungy pumps out consistently very good teams. For 13 years. Hes a very good coach. I don't know how anyone can discredit him. He's only overrated by people who think he's a blue chip coach. Again... He is Marty, not herm.
Has Tony Dungy had even an NFL-average defense without Monte Kiffin as his DC?
