Tony Dungy

Anthony Kevin Dungy – born October 6, 1955 – is a sports analyst and former American football safety and coach, who served as a head coach in the National Football League (NFL) for 13 seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts.

Dungy’s teams became perennial postseason contenders under his leadership, missing playoffs only twice in Tampa Bay.

He led the Colts to victory in Super Bowl XLI, making him the first black head coach to win the Super Bowl.

Dungy began his head coaching tenure in 1996 with the Buccaneers, a franchise regarded as one of the league’s worst. Through implementation of the Tampa 2 defensive scheme, Dungy brought new success to the Buccaneers, leading them to four playoff appearances in six seasons.

He would be fired after the 2001 playoffs due to frequent postseason struggles, but is credited with constructing the team that won Super Bowl XXXVII the following year.

After his departure from Tampa Bay, Dungy served as the Colts’ head coach for seven seasons, qualifying for the playoffs in each.

His greatest success occurred with the Colts’ Super Bowl-winning season in 2006, the franchise’s first in over three decades and the first since relocating to Indianapolis.

He retired from coaching following the 2008 season.

Since retiring, Dungy has served as an analyst on NBC’s Football Night in America.
