"Monte is a great coach," Dungy said Friday. "My question is: Are they going to do what their personnel dictates or are they going to change and go to Monte’s system and kind of what he grown these last couple of decades? That’ll be the big thing they’re going to have to do. But they’re getting a great guy. The one thing that’s going to happen is the accountability. There’s going to be hustle and the energy and playing at a passionate level. They’re going to be very, very well prepared. There’s a lot of things that he’s going to bring to the table that’ll help them. My only question is: Are they going to use a couple of drafts and try to put together the personnel for what he did with us in Tampa? Or is he going to say, ‘You know what, here’s what I’ve got: I’ve got two dominate outside linebackers. I’ve got these corners. We’re going to build around them and do what they do best.’ That’ll be the key I guess. He’ll have them playing well, and they’ll play at a high level I’m sure."
"As Rod Marinelli said, there are things that probably are never going to change with Monte -- just how you play the game, and what he’s going to expect from those guys in terms of preparation and communication and being on the same page and playing to a high standard for each other," Dungy said. "...He's energetic No. 1 and a perfectionist and someone who will not settle for less than total dedication from his group. I think he gets the best out of everyone. But he has very, very high expectations."
Dungy, though, said the Cowboys lack the personnel the Bucs had in running a successful Tampa 2 defense.
"I just think their personnel is set up differently," Dungy said. "But again, I don’t know if they’re just saying, 'You know what, we just want to get the best coach available, and Monte, you make this thing work with the people we have' and maybe they are going to do that and do something a little bit differently that utilizes these guys."
