Dolphins Legend Don Shula, Winningest Coach In NFL History, Dead At 90


May 4, 2020

The NFL has lost one of its most legendary figures.

Longtime Miami Dolphins head coach Don Shula died Monday morning, the team announced in a statement. The winningest coach in NFL history was 90 years old.

“Don Shula was the patriarch of the Miami Dolphins for 50 years,” the statement read. “He brought the winning edge to our franchise and put the Dolphins and the city of Miami in the national sports scene. Our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to Mary Anne along with his children Dave, Donna, Sharon, Anne and Mike.”

Shula led the 1972 Dolphins to the league’s only undefeated season. His 347 wins (including playoffs) are the most in NFL history, with Chicago Bears legend George Hallas (324 wins) and New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick (304 wins) ranking second and third, respectively.

Shula won two Super Bowls (VII and VIII) as head coach of the Dolphins. He resigned after the 1995 season and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1997.
