The popular former Washington Redskins football coach spoke second at the Values Voter Summit. He brought up the topic of evolution early in his speech. "God has to be the head coach in the game of life," he said.
He believes in God because he encounters design in nature. He talked about his wrist watch, saying that just as it is impossible for it to come together without a designer it is impossible for nature to exist without a designer.
He talked about God being a loving creator in addition to being the designer.
Gibbs compared the value of worldly success with the value of his family and children. He said that his family is much more important than leading a football team.
"The most important thing in our life is our kids and influencing others," he said.
