Tony Dungy wouldn't have qualms with Michael Vick running his huddle.

But Dungy asserted he wouldn't want Rex Ryan to coach his players.

Dungy, while visiting the "Dan Patrick Show," was asked what he thought of Ryan's proclivity for profanity. Ryan delivered a stream of expletives in a speech to the New York Jets in last week's season premiere of "Hard Knocks" on HBO.

Dungy expressed dismay over the blue language. Patrick asked if Dungy would hire Ryan for his staff.

"I would not," Dungy said. "I personally don't want my players to be around that. I don't want to be around that.

"It's hard for me to be around that, and if I were in charge, no, I wouldn't hire someone like that. Now, I've been around F-bombs, so it's not like it's new. But I just don't think that has to be part of your every-minute, everyday vocabulary to get your points across."
