Few players-turned-coaches have had the success of Tony Dungy. He’s the first African-American head coach to win a Super Bowl (when the Indianapolis Colts beat the Chicago Bears in 2007) and he set a NFL record for consecutive playoff appearances by a head coach (including his tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
But his on-the-field accomplishments are only a glimpse into the man that continues to give back to those in need some four years after he retired as a coach. The current analyst on “Sunday Night Football” and “Football Night In America” has also authored two No. 1. New York Times best-selling books (“Quiet Strength,” “Uncommon”). And as spokesman for All Pro Dad he is doing his part to keep fathers engaged with their children.
Now he’s partnered with Comcast to bridge the digital divide through its Internet Essentials program. Watch the interview with Dungy, Comcast’s Executive Vice President David Cohen and Urban League of Greater Atlanta’s President and CEO Nancy Flake Johnson, above.
(And get his encouraging news – yes ENCOURAGING news – about our Atlanta Falcons!)
