Former NFL defensive back and head coach Tony Dungy was recently spotted helping out as a volunteer for the Salvation Army ahead of the holidays.
CBS football analyst Jay Feely posted a photo of Dungy serving at a local grocery store, heaping praise on the current 67-year-old, who coached for 13 seasons in the NFL before becoming an analyst himself.
Dungy climbed up the coaching ladder as a defensive backs coach and defensive coordinator after retiring as a player. He got his first head coaching job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1996 and spent 13 years functioning as such, also taking charge of the Indianapolis Colts. He retired from coaching in 2008.

When Dungy joined the Bucs, they had lost 12 of their last 13 seasons by double digits. He quickly turned things around and the team would finish 10-6 to reach the playoffs in his second season. They went 11-5 two terms later and won their first divisional title since 1981.
Dungy was let go by Tampa Bay after six seasons, four of which included postseason appearances. But he would coach the Colts to Super Bowl victory in 2006, with the franchise hiring him just days after he was fired by the Bucs.
Indianapolis experienced unprecedented success, winning 12 or more games six years out of the seven he was around after going 10-6 in his first year there.
Dungy became the first African American to win a Super Bowl as a head coach. His coaching record stands at 148-79-0, with a .668 winning percentage.
He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
