A coach's faith: Why Dungy helped Vick return

BY foxsports • September 21, 2009

Tony Dungy's favorite verse in the Bible is Matthew 16:26: "What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but forfeit his soul?"

"In my 30 years in the NFL, I've seen a lot of that," says the first African-American head coach to win a Super Bowl and a best-selling author of inspirational books. "All the notoriety, all the accolades, all the money that people could get, and you see guys that aren't happy, and have personal problems because they haven't directed their lives toward something that's going to be long lasting."
