The Buccaneers will induct former head coach Tony Dungy into the Ring of Honor this year.
Tony Dungy will be the twelfth inductee into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Ring of Honor and will be the only one this season.
Dungy's induction ceremony will take place on September 24th. during the Bucs home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game will be nationally televised on Monday Night Football.
“Tony Dungy’s impact on the Buccaneers and the Tampa Bay community is not measured in terms of wins and losses," Bucs owner and co-chairman Bryan Glazer said in a statement. "Tony transformed our entire organization and established a winning culture that set the foundation for the most successful era in our franchise’s history. Through his exceptional leadership, Tony set a new benchmark for excellence on and off the field that we still strive to achieve to this day.”
Tony Dungy spent six seasons with the Bucs and had a 54-42 regular season record, a franchise best. He also led the team to four playoff appearances. Many say that it was Dungy's program and success that took the Bucs to a Super Bowl win in 2003.
