Tony Dungy to speak at ECCC event in March ‘14

DECATUR — Former National Football League head football coach Tony Dungy will be the guest speaker at an East Central Community College-sponsored program scheduled March 28, 2014, at the Neshoba County Coliseum in Philadelphia.

    Dungy, who will visit the EC campus in Decatur prior to the event, will participate in a fundraising effort for the Warrior football program, led by first-year head coach Ken Karcher, a longtime friend and associate.

    Dungy, who retired from coaching in 2008 after a successful career which included a 2007 Super Bowl victory with the Indianapolis Colts, now serves as an analyst for NBC’s Football Night in America.

    He is also the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Quiet Strength and Uncommon.

    In addition, Dungy is involved in a wide variety of charitable organizations, including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Athletes in Action, Mentors for Life, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Clubs, Prison Crusade Ministry, All-Pro Dads and many others.

    “The College is extremely fortunate to have someone of Coach Dungy’s reputation and stature to visit our campus and community,” said ECCC President Dr. Billy Stewart. “I can say that our football program, our college and our community will be blessed by the presence of Tony Dungy this spring.”  

    More information about Coach Tony Dungy’s visit to East Central Community College will be announced at a later date.
