Dungy Named to Ring of Honor

The Indianapolis Colts have recently honored former head coach Tony Dungy in the team’s Ring of Honor. Dungy led the Colts to their first Super Bowl win since the 1970’s when Dungy’s Colts beat the Chicago Bears, 29-17, in the 2007 Super Bowl. Dungy led the Colts to at least twelve wins almost every single season. He was also the first black coach to win a Super Bowl.

“I’m thrilled,” said Dungy, who retired after the 2008 season and now works as an NFL analyst on NBC’s Sunday night studio show. “When you’re a kid coming into the NFL, you dream of a lot of things. I can say I dreamt about making the team and playing and winning a Super Bowl, and I dreamt about coaching in a Super Bowl.

“But I never dreamt about having my name in a stadium. It’s just not something you even consider.”
