One other thing to consider, pro football coaches have a lot less on their plate than college coaches. In pro football, winning is all that matters. You have to spend all your time getting your 53 players to be in position to win as many of the 16 games and then playoffs as possible.
In College Football, you're dealing with a roster of 80+ players who you need to develop, hundreds of high school players you have to recruit, and then you have to market the program to boosters, the community at large, and in some cases some state government relations to round things out.
If someone has never worked in a college program(and I thought Dungy went straight to the Steelers or Vikings but could be wrong) it would really be difficult to do the job correctly.
