INDIANAPOLIS – A coach and a receiver who did so much to establish the Colts as an NFL power in the late 90’s and early 2000’s are one step closer to NFL immortality.
One Thursday the NFL announced that former Colts coach Tony Dungy and receiver Marvin Harrison have been named among the 15 finalists for the NFL’s 2014 Hall of Fame Class.
The inductees will be announced during the NFL Honors in New York City on Saturday, February 1st.
Dungy coached the Colts for seven seasons compiling a 92-33 overall record with five AFC South championships. During the 2006 he led the Colts to their only Indianapolis Super Bowl Championship to date, beating the Bears 29-17 at Super Bowl XLI in Miami Gardens, Fla.
Arguably one of the best receivers in the history of the game, Harrison caught 1,102 passes for 14,580 yards and 128 touchdowns in his 13-year career which spent entirely in Indianapolis.
