Dungy will be the 12th inductee to the club's prestigious Ring of Honor. 

The ceremony will take place during the team's Monday Night Football home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 24, 2018. 

Dungy was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2016. As a head coach of the Buccaneers, Dungy's record was 54-42. 

Buccaneers Owner/Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer said: “Tony Dungy’s impact on the Buccaneers and the Tampa Bay community is not measured in terms of wins and losses. 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.”

“I will always be grateful to the Glazer family for giving me my first opportunity to coach a team,” Dungy said. “It was an awesome time for me and my family as we encountered so many special players, staff members, and fans. This induction into the Buccaneers Ring of Honor puts a bow on all those great memories.”
