Retirement = Reassignment
Props to Tony Dungy. The former Indianapolis Colts coach resigned at age 53. As I scanned articles it was refreshing to see unanimous commendations of this vocal Christian who also happened to be the first African-American head coach to win a Super Bowl.
Tony is burdened for youngsters growing up in fatherless homes and will probably be more heavily involved in outreach to that group. He also will continue working with prison ministry.
His book, "Quiet Strength," though not the best written, is encouraging and insightful.
As he leaves football behind, many will remember that he frequently said his priorities were "Faith, Family, Football."
