Dungy also has a reputation as an evangelical Christian who walks the walk. As a coach he was known for his calm, well-spoken manner - never swearing or yelling at players or stomping his feet at a referee or living a bling-filled life.
Sadly, he and his wife, Lauren, also endured a terrible tragedy in 2005 when James Dungy (the eldest son) committed suicide.
Talk about extreme ups and downs.
Tony Dungy is now retired from football. He spends his time helping charitable organizations, mentoring young men (like Michael Vick), sharing his testimony, and writing practical self-help books, like Uncommon, Finding Your Path to Significance.
I highly recommend his books for young people in need of moral guidance about relationships, faith, and character. They are easy to read (or to listen to), practical, wholesome, and well-written.
