Michael Keller Ditka is a former American football player, coach, and television commentator.

A member of both the College Football and Pro Football Hall of Fames, he was the 1961 UPI NFL Rookie of Year, a five-time Pro Bowl selection and five-time All-Pro tight end with the Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles, and Dallas Cowboys.

Sure-handed and tenacious running with the ball, he led the transformation of the position into today's modern offensive threat.

He was an NFL champion with the 1963 Bears, and is a three-time Super Bowl champion, playing on the Cowboy's VI and coaching on the XII winning teams and coaching the Bears to victory in Super Bowl XX.

He was named to both the NFL's 50th and 75th Anniversary All-Time Teams.

As a coach for the Bears for 11 years he was twice both the AP and UPI NFL Coach of Year.

He also coached the New Orleans Saints for 3 years.

He and Tom Flores are the only two people to win an NFL title as a player, an assistant coach, and a head coach.

Ditka is also the only individual in modern NFL history to win a championship with the same team as a player and a head coach.
