Dungy, the man responsible for turning around the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was fired after failing to lead the Bucs to the Super Bowl—despite several playoff appearances.

He was able to do so in spite of the tragic loss of his 18-year-old son. Dungy has three New York Times’ bestsellers under his belt: Quiet Storm, Uncommon and, the most recent, The Mentor Leader.
