Former Jackson, Michigan native and Super Bowl champion coach Tony Dungy could receive a presidential appointment.
President Bush today announced his intention to appoint the Indianapolis Colts head coach to the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation. The term runs for two years.
Dungy calls it a great honor and says he was first asked about taking the position when the Colts visited the White House in April.
Indianapolis beat Chicago 29-17 in February to win its first title since moving from Baltimore in 1984.
Dungy is a devout Christian. He has a top-selling book to his credit and has said most of the proceeds will go to charitable organizations.
