Tampa, FL-- 10 News Sports Anchor Dave Wirth sat down for a conversation with former Bucs' head coach Tony Dungy.

Tony told Dave he's as busy as he's ever been.  He flies to Oregon most every week, to see his son, Eric, play for the Oregon Ducks.

He flies to New York every Sunday, to appear on NBC's Sunday Night Football. 

But he said he enjoys the time he has with his children.  He and his wife Lauren still have 5 children at home in Tampa.

His thoughts on current Bucs' head coach Greg Schiano:

"He's done a great job putting his imprint on the team.  His players are starting to buy in a little bit more, and they're believing.  They've got an explosive offense, and they're fast on defense.  We hope we'll get to flex them on Sunday Night in December."

On the problems of Adderall:

"I think the players have a problem with Adderall, not the league.  The rules are clearly laid out.  We have a 12-year-old son who's taking Adderall, and he has a prescription.  It's been very helpful.  The league has been very clear, it's fine as long as you notify the league that you have a prescription.  The guys who have been suspended, it's because there's not a legitimate use."

On players the Bucs have released, or traded, like Aqib Talib:

"I think you're always in players' corners if you think they're making progress, and doing what you're trying to teach.  We had to do that in my first year, in 1996.  I had some rules that they didn't have before.  Some players don't adjust as fast.  If you feel players are not making the effort, then a change is the best thing, and I think that's what happened here."
