Friday: Hank Azaria

NBC’s Tony Dungy joined the show to talk about his quotes in Ira Kaufman’s story for the Tampa Tribune. Here are some of Dungy’s comments:

— Dungy explained  that the interview was about distractions and the Draft and he gave the quote when the Oprah documentary series was still in play for Sam.

— Dungy wanted to make it clear that he supports Michael Sam being on the Rams: “I do believe he should be there and I’m glad he is.”

— Dungy answered Dan’s question about how he can say Sam would be a distraction if he can support players like Michael Vick or Jonathan Martin — who could be perceived as distractions” If we substitute Jonathan Martin for Michael Sam, no one is going to replay those quotes two, three months later.”

— Dungy said that he would not draft based on a player’s religious views: “When you go into coaching, you have a responsibility to deliver a good football team to your owner.”

— Dungy said his views on gay marriage would not affect the way he drafted: “Gay marriage and who should be on a football team have nothing to do with each other.”

— Dungy said that he was disappointed that people said he was “anti-gay.”
