The Buccaneers may not have ever won the Super Bowl with Tony Dungy but they would not have won it without him. Under his coaching and leadership, the franchise turned around in the late 90s paving the way for the success in San Diego in January 2003.
Dungy then went on to coach the Indianapolis Colts and led them to Super Bowl success after the 2006 season. Naturally this then led to an autobiography written in conjunction with Nathan Whitaker in which he recounts his days leading up to lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
For Buccaneer fans, there are several chapters dealing with his time in Tampa, getting the head coaching job and then the stages taken to rebuild the franchise. There are stories about particular players and situations culminating in his firing after a second consecutive playoff loss to the Eagles.
This is an essential part of your Buccaneer bookcase. There will never be a finer man associated with the NFL than Tony Dungy and his philosophies and beliefs can be found on almost every page on this fine book.
