Dungy joined the Colts in 2002 after serving as the most successful head coach in Tampa Bay Buccaneers history. He also held assistant coaching positions with the University of Minnesota, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings. Before becoming a coach, he played three seasons in the NFL. Dungy was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

He retired from coaching in 2009 and now serves as a studio analyst for NBC’s “Football Night in America.” He and his wife, Lauren, are the parents of 11 children.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Coach Dungy about what it means to live an “uncommon” life, standing up for his faith, and why he wants to always live out his faith in the workplace.
