Broadcaster Tony Dungy happy to be back in Minnesota for Super Bowl

While some may prefer a warmer location for Sunday's big game, former NFL head coach and Super Bowl winner Tongy Dungy feels right at home.

"It's been great for me, a real blessing to come back,” said Dungy. “[NBC gets the Super Bowl] every three years and so you can't control that, but to have it here has been special."

Dungy's Minnesota ties run deep. He was a four-year starter at quarterback for the Golden Gophers back in the ‘70s and as Minneapolis is now on the grandest stage hosting Super Bowl LII, Dungy is excited to see the city he once called home getting the chance to showcase itself to the world.

"The city, I knew they were going to roll out everything,” said Dungy. “There's a lot of civic pride here. We're all concerned what the Super Bowl is going to be like at zero degrees, walking around but they're going to put their best foot forward. The volunteers have been outstanding and it's going to be a great week."

His Minnesota connections also extend to the Vikings organization where he served as the team's defensive coordinator for four seasons. When asked about the state of the Vikings, Dungy sounded optimistic about their future.

"Minnesota played great,” he said. “They've got a tremendous defense. Their offense is explosive, Dalvin Cook coming back full speed with Murray now obviously going to help them. But you've just got to keep chipping away and then eventually you realize we don't have to make another step or something to get over the hump, we just got to be able to now come into that championship game and play the way we can play for sixty minutes."
