He was definitely the anti-Dungy as it pertained to head coaches. Lovie I don’t think was ever an innovator. As stubborn and stoic as both Dungy and Lovie were, at least once Dungy got to Indy he allowed the team to lean on the offense for a change. In Chicago Lovie was good, but that was right around the time the rest of the league figured out the Tampa 2. After coming back from his basement to coach the Bucs he never developed the scheme further and I feel that was his downfall. He never changed his game be it offense or defense from what was taking place in the league in the mid 90s. Surprised he didn’t call it a career after Illinois. Let this sink in for a second, Ron Zook had a better record at Illinois than Lovie did.
