“Don’t shed any tears for me. I got to live a dream most people don’t get to live.”

Tony Dungy, coach of the Indianpolis Colts, retired after 31 years with the NFL.  Dungy won a Super Bowl ring as a player with the Pittsburgh Steelers and became the first black coach to win the Super Bowl.  Dungy helped opened the door for other black coaches in the NFL.  Current coaches who worked under Dungy include Herm Edwards (Kansas City), Lubbie Smith (Chicago), and Mike Thomlin (Pittsburgh).  Dungy leaves with the highest average of regular season victories of any coach in league history.
