“The Day Nursery of Abilene is honored to host Dungy and invites you to share in his message as the faith and family focused leader delivers a memorable evening during a monumental year for DNA,” a promotional email says.
In 13 seasons as head coach of the Colts and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dungy amassed a 148-79 record and reached the postseason an unprecedented 10 straight times. On Feb. 4, 2007, Dungy became the first Black coach to lead his team to a championship when his Colts defeated the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI.
Known for a leadership style that emphasizes decency and respect, his priorities of faith and family were always evident in his coaching. Most recently, Dungy and his wife, Lauren, released a book titled “You Can Be a Friend,” which teaches children about friendship.
