Tony Dungy’s Long Distance Life Style

February 8th, 2008 by betagnome

Here is a great article about Tony Dungy and his new long-distance lifestyle.

From Robert King at the Indianapolis Star

Tony Dungy’s decision to stick with the Indianapolis Colts next season, even as his family remains in Florida, pleasantly surprised many fans who thought he was about to ride off into the sunset.

But it also has brought attention to the difficult issues facing a fast-growing number of people who work in one state while their family lives in another: Do the benefits of a job outweigh the costs of temporarily separating the family? Can a commuter parent still be effective? When can the strain of separation break a family?

The Dungy family calculus includes some unusual variables: a $5 million salary, access to a company jet — and the pressures of fame. But some universal elements play a role, too: young children who can’t grasp the big issues, a teen whose stage in life may be better suited to the arrangement, and a marriage that will need nurturing from afar.

Dungy’s use of his platform as an NFL coach to promote the importance of fathers in their children’s lives, and that family should always come before career, prompted some — including Indianapolis Star columnist Bob Kravitz — to question the choice. But many more folks seem to have faith in Dungy and see no disconnect between his message and his choice.
