At a Glance
Tony Dungy is a former professional American football player and coach in the National Football League. Dungy was head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1996 to 2001, and head coach of the Indianapolis Colts from 2002 to 2008. In 2008 Dungy led the Colts to a Super Bowl Victory. Since his retirement, Tony has been an active community leader with All Pro Dad, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and The Boys and Girls club. He is also a commentator on NBC’s Football Night in America. Tony and his wife, Lauren, have six children.
Tony Dungy says that being a father is his most important job, and with six children, it’s a job that keeps him very busy. Since his retirement from the NFL in January, Coach Dungy and his wife, Lauren, are enjoying their first real “off season” from professional football at their home in Tampa. Coach Dungy's fatherhood role model is his own dad, Wilbur Dungy. Tony grew up in Michigan, and says his father was always there to support him and encourage him. From him, Tony says, he learned that being a good father takes commitment and compassion. Quite simply, Coach Dungy loves being a dad. He says a good friend gave him some very important advice years ago, that he still tries to live by. The advice is this: fathers need to cherish whatever stage their children are in instead of wishing for the next one to hurry up and get here, because before you know it, that stage will be over, never to return again.
