Tony Dungy to Join Faith-Based Council

The White House has invited recently retired NFL Coach Tony Dungy to join the Advisory Council for the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Dan Gilgoff reports.

Dungy led the Indianapolis Colts to the Super Bowl in 2007. Known for his strong Christian faith commitment to family, Dungy retired to spend more time with his family and in volunteer work. He has long been involved with groups like Family First, All-Pro Dad, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Prison Crusade Ministry, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the United Way.

Christianity Today's Stan Guthrie recently interviewed Tony Dungy (listen here). CT also covered Dungy in "A Kinder, Gentler Coach" and "Christian Coaches Face Off for Super Bowl XLI."
