No he hasn't:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3199685

ProFootballTalk is mere speculation until I see it being reported by a legit news site then I'll believe it. This just looks like someone trying to be the first to report a story.

Mike Florio normally gets accurate info. And I wouldn't go by anything ESPN says.

Yeah, because a story citing an unnamed league source is so much more credible than a story on ESPN directly quoting Dungy as saying he has not made up his mind.

I know ESPN can be just as guilty jumping the shark on stories like this, but anytime I see a story that sites an unnamed source I immediately take it with a grain of salt regardless of who is reporting it. The fact that no other major new outlets are reporting it makes even more sketchy.

The dominoes are starting to topple: First Washington, and now (apparently) Indianapolis.

Looks like Jacksonville has real chances in the AFC South next year; and the trend in the NFC East of no team finishing last in back-to-back seasons, which dates back to the realignment, figures to hold up as well, particularly if proven loser Gregg Williams inherits Joe Gibbs' job (and providing that the Eagles do something about the crazy uncle that has been residing in their attic for virtually all of the last 35 years, if you know what I'm getting at).

It looks like Dungy hasn't actually left yet, but probably will.

Yeah, I think he probably will to. The sad thing is that if it happens ProFootballTalk will go on how they were the first to report it when there clearly is nothing to substantiate the story at this time.

Yeah, looks like Florio's "source" was wrong or they never existed in the first place.
