Super Bowl Coach Drops Gargantuan Tip

2/5/2010 2:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Indianapolis Colts coach jim caldwellIndianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell isn't holding anything back for Super Bowl week -- including his wallet -- 'cause dude just dropped a monstrous tip after a coaches dinner in Florida this week.

TMZ has learned Coach Caldwell hit Grille 66 & Bar in Ft. Lauderdale on Tuesday night where he and his crew gorged themselves on stone crabs, shrimp, oysters, and "several" orders of the surf and turf.

A source connected to the situation tells TMZ Caldwell and Co. racked up a $2,500 bill -- but left a $1,000 tip ... that's 40%.

TMZ spoke with restaurant manager Peter Brennen who wouldn't confirm the numbers but did admit he was "very generous."

We called the Colts for comment ... but apparently, they're a little too preoccupied at the moment.

Harvey, Jime Caldwell is one of the most mild mannered men in Football. And you have the gall to post the most offensive picture of him you can find. You'd never do that to a fellow Jew.

Hate to be a pill...but $1,000 of $25k is not 40%. It is only 4%. The appropriate tip should have been around $5000 for a party of that size.

I am going to go guess the author forgot to type in an extra 0 - making the tip $10,000 or 40%.

Hey smart guy? the bill was $2500 (that's two thousand five hundred). A 40% tip is indeed $1000.

Grille 66 is in Fort Lauderdale, not Miami @ Pier 66. Hence Grille 66.

I agree on the picture, not cool Harvey. BTW - if people haven't figured this out...the Indianapolis Colts from Top to Bottom are a class act. Doesn't surprise me a bit. Occasionally, we may get a bad apple or two but they are usually cut...no matter how good they are.

I guess counting isn't part of the education system in "Smart Guys' neck of the woods.

From the story

$2500 is not $25k. $25k looks like this 25,000.00
