Sen. Evan Bayh wants to put Tony Dungy back to work.

Just days after Dungy announced his retirement at head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, the Indiana Democrat is urging President-elect Barack Obama to recruit Dungy to help promote responsible fatherhood.

Dungy has been active with an NFL program for fathers called All-Pro Dads and has said he wants to mentor teenagers and young adults. Bayh says Dungy is a role model for young people across America.

Bayh plans to reintroduce a bill next month that he says would help remove barriers for fathers trying to reconnect with their children. He says Obama has pledged to sign the bill into law as President.

Dungy led the Colts to the Super Bowl in 2006.
