From his days playing on the field, coaching on the sidelines and now, serving up insight in the broadcast booth on NBC’s Football Night in America, many of us have admired Tony Dungy.
But while Coach Dungy has a keen football mind, we especially appreciate him for his commitment to his family and the boldness with which he shares his deep Christian faith.
“My job as a dad is to point my children to the Lord, and everything else in life will take care of itself,” he once observed.
With eleven children, Coach Dungy exemplifies and models Christian fatherhood. As a contributor to the ministry All Pro Dad, he talks about a wide range of practical issues impacting the family, including race relations.
I recently had the opportunity to pose a few questions to the coach about a new resource that he and his colleagues put together. It’s called “Race Conversations for Families.” You can download it for free here.
But I hope you’ll watch this short video exchange – and please let me know what you think!

-Unfortunately, “race conversations” in America today are not conversations, but lectures on how evil or privileged “white people” especially “white males” are. After serving in the Army for over 27 years and then working for DoD since then God has placed me in situations to work with and for many different so-called “races”. God has said there is only one race – the Human race – and that we should treat everyone as individuals created in the image of our Father – not as members of some artificial, man made group that only divides us.
-It’s truly sad that this is very true.. we have to keep fighting everyday.. Thank you for your words
