Tony Dungy Calls Out ESPN For U.S. Open Clip Of Coco Gauff

Tony Dungy, a former NFL head coach and current NBC announcer, has long been vocal about his Christian beliefs.

So, when Dungy saw what he perceived as ESPN attempting to divert attention away from, or possibly disregard,

tennis phenom Coco Gauff's prayer following her U.S. Open victory on Saturday, he responded on Twitter.

Dungy expressed his displeasure after seeing a video posted by the SportsCenter Twitter account of Gauff 

on her knees on the sidelines after defeating Aryna Sabalenka to win her first Grand Slam singles title.

"CocoGauff took a moment to soak it all in after winning her first Grand Slam title," the tweet's caption reads. 

"I'm sorry to break it to you, SportsCenter, but Coco Gauff was not'soaking it all in' right now."

 Dungy explained, "She was praying." "In the past, she has been very open about her Christian faith." What she's doing here appears to be rather evident."

Dungy's religious convictions have gotten him in trouble and led to accusations of discrimination

on several occasions, but it hasn't stopped him from being outspoken about his faith.
