Dungy & Smith pose for Christian ad

MIAMI (BP)--Borrowing from the traditional photo of both opposing coaches posing with the Super Bowl trophy, Tony Dungy of the Indianapolis Colts and Lovie Smith of the Chicago Bears are giving it a new twist for their shared faith in Jesus Christ.

Dungy and Smith, both good friends and fellow Christians, will appear in a full-page ad saying that while they may attain the height of their profession with a Super Bowl victory, their faith in Jesus Christ is still more important.

The advertisement was the idea of Campus Crusade for Christ, which is paying for the ad to run in USA Today and a variety of national newspapers, according to ministry officials.

Before Tuesday’s Media Day in Miami, both men posed for the ad, which will include a phone number and an Internet address associated with Campus Crusade aimed toward leading people to faith in Christ.

“It’s a great thrill to be here with my friend Lovie Smith because we have so much in common on the field and off,” Dungy said.
