Married to the same woman for over 27 years. No scandals and he believed that God gave him coaching as a platform to share Christ with the world. He is considered one of strongest Christian coaches ever coach the game. I can personally testify to this character and competency on and off the field.
To me Tony Dungy is a true winner.
Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
I really believe every man needs a coach. Think of anyone who has attained greatness. Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, all considered great professionals. They will all tell they had coaches to help bring out their greatness.
Tony Dungy didn’t have rules but he had six strong suggestions that all players had to conform to. He didn’t believe in finning guys but teaching them to govern themselves with character and competency.
Tony Dungy’s 6 Suggestions:
1. Out after 1am may not be a good thing.
2. No DUI’s
3. No Guns
4. Don’t speed
5. One woman at a time.
6. Respect Police if stopped.
My life’s motto, I Got from Tony D.
