NFL rumors spread like wildfire, especially in the final week of the regular season.
As 'Black Monday' approaches, there's been a rumor floating around that former Colts head coach Tony Dungy was set to make a return to the NFL coaching ranks, and landing with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Dungy, who has been working for NBC Sports since his departure from the NFL, put those rumors to rest with a simple Tweet.
We lived in Kansas City 3 years and loved it. I love the Hunt family. But I will not be back in coaching, there or anywhere else.
