Former Indianapolis Colts Coach Tony Dungy may join the 15-member advisory Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships in the Obama administration, U.S. News reported Tuesday.

Dungy, a longtime evangelical Christian who is outspoken about his faith, has been invited to join the council.

"I can confirm that Tony was contacted by the advisory council and asked to join," said Todd Starowitz, a publicist at for Dungy's publisher. "He has yet to make a decision if he will accept the offer."

The White House has announced 15 of the 25 members of the council, with another 10 expected to be named soon.
