One of the greatest NFL coaches steps down

tony-dungyTony Dungy has decided to call it quits after a stellar career as an NFL head coach, perhaps one of the greatest coaches in the NFL’s modern day era. Dungy was 53-years-old with a career regular-season record of 139-69. Dungy had 6-straight 12-win seasons and also recorded 10 consecutive playoff appearances. He also won the Super Bowl in 2007, becoming the first black head coach to ever do so.

Dungy faced many battles throughout his coaching career, including the suicide of his son in 2005, and still made his mark as one the greatest coaches and people to ever touch the NFL. Dungy has said that he will now focus on prison ministry and spending time with his family. The Indianapolis Colts have introduced Jim Caldwell as their new head coach. Caldwell served as an assistant coach under Dungy since 2001.

A great coach and an even greater person.
