Don Shula Passes Away at 90

Don Shula

The winningest coach in NFL history, Don Shula, has passed away at age 90. The Miami Dolphins, with whom Shula won two Super Bowls, released a statement on his death via Twitter on Monday morning.

Shula won 347 games as a head coach, including two Super Bowls with the Dolphins and one NFL Championship with the Baltimore Colts before the AFL-NFL merger. He is the all-time winningest coach in the history of the NFL, with 328 regular season wins and 19 postseason victories.

He also coached the Dolphins to the only perfect season in NFL history. Miami went 12-0 in 1972, winning their two playoff games including Super Bowl VII. The New England Patriots accomplished a similar feat in 2008, going 18-0 en route to Super Bowl XLII before falling to the New York Giants.

A Hall of Famer, and four-time Coach of the Year, Shula will always be remembered as one of the greatest of all time. He passed away “peacefully,” according to one of his children, on May 4, 2020.
