INDIANAPOLIS (TICKER) —Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy is expected to step down on Monday, according to a published report.
FOX Sports, citing team sources, reported that Dungy has made the decision to retire after seven seasons with Indianapolis.

Dungy, 53, was expected to meet with Colts owner Jim Irsay on Monday to inform him of his decision. FOX reported that Dungy was spending Monday morning saying good-bye to his players and team employees.
Making decisions regarding his future has become an annual rite of winter for Dungy, who has has mulled retirement for the past few seasons - most notably after Indianapolis won the Super Bowl following the 2006 season.
Dungy became the first black coach to win a Super Bowl.
The Colts are 92-33 and have made the playoffs in seven consecutive seasons under Dungy, who joined Indianapolis in 2002 after a six-year stint as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
