Tony Dungy: ‘God Has Me at NBC’ to be 'Voice for Christian Athletes’


Legendary NFL coach Tony Dungy believes that he is a sports commentator on NBC because God wants him there.

Talking to CBN News Dungy, an analyst on NBC's "Football Night in America," spoke the comments he made this past Super Bowl after he interviewed Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles.   

”[Foles] told me he felt that God had him on that Philadelphia Eagles team for a reason," Dungy said. "He had been the backup quarterback, now he was starting in the Super Bowl and he felt very confident he was going to have a good game because he believed God had him there for that purpose.”

"A lot of people said, 'Well, you shouldn't bring religion into it,' and I was just reporting the facts," explained Dungy. "But believe it or not, I got much more support than I did heat. So many people wrote in and said, 'Hey, I'm glad that you said and reported on exactly what he said and I'm glad you talked about his faith in Christ.'"

Dungy added that he believes his willingness to share his faith is why God has him at NBC: ”I feel like that's one of the reasons God has me at NBC, to be the voice for some of these Christian athletes who want to say those things,"
