Tony Dungy, a former head coach in the National Football League who is now a commentator for NBC, has long been vocal about his Christian beliefs.
Dungy tweeted about how he felt ESPN was trying to downplay or dismiss tennis star Coco Gauff's prayer after she won the U.S. Open on Saturday.
SportsCenter's Twitter account tweeted a video of Gauff kneeling on the sidelines after she
she defeated Aryna Sabalenka to win her maiden Grand Slam singles title, and Dungy took issue with it.
"CocoGauff took a moment to soak it all in after winning her first Grand Slam title," the tweet's caption reads.
Sorry to burst your bubble, SportsCenter, but Coco Gauff wasn't "soaking it all in." Dungy remarked, "
She was praying." In the past, she made no secret of her Christian religion.
t's quite clear what she's trying to do. Dungy has been upfront about being a Christian despite the fact that his religious convictions have gotten him into trouble and led to accusations of discrimination on many occasions.
Gauff, who lost to Iga Swiatek in the 2022 French Open finals, beat Sabalenka 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 yesterday in Queens for the biggest win of her career.
