Tony Dungy head coach of the Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts in the 2006 season, well known for espousing Christian principles in coaching. While the press made a big deal over Tony being the first black head coach to win a Super Bowl, Tony commented that he thought it was even more important that he and the head coach for the Bears were Christians first on the field and in the way they coached, and that they showed that Christian coaching could win Super Bowls.
On January 12, 2009, Dungy announced his retirement as Colts head coach. Dungy: "I think I've got a responsibility to be home a little bit more, be available to my family a little bit more and do some things to help make our country better. I don't know what that is right now, but we'll see." Associate coach Jim Caldwell was named as Dungy's replacement.
