Don Shula Bio

In 1951, Shula was signed by the Cleveland Browns as a defensive back for two years. He played with Baltimore for four seasons before finishing his playing career with the Washington Redskins. Shula intercepted 21 passes in his seven NFL seasons but his true calling was coaching.

Shula had unparalleled success with the Miami Dolphins in the 1970s. His teams were known for a strong running game and a solid quarterback, with a defense that worked well as a cohesive unit. In 1972, the Dolphins became the first team in the modern NFL to go undefeated (14-0) in the regular season. They swept the playoffs finishing at 17-0. Including the Dolphins' 12-2 mark in 1973, the club also set a record with a 32-2 record over two seasons.

Shula set numerous records in his 33 seasons as a head coach. He has held NFL records for regular season wins (328), total victories (347), single season win percentage (1.000 in 1972), most games coached (526), most playoff losses (17), and most consecutive seasons coached (33).

Shula left quite a legacy. He is honored at the Don Shula Sports Center at John Carroll University, and the Don Shula Expressway in Miami. Additionally, an annual college football game between Florida Atlantic University and Florida International University is named the Shula Bowl in his honor. The game's winner receives a traveling trophy named the Don Shula Award. In 1997, Shula was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

While in retirement, Shula has lent his name to a chain of popular steakhouses Shula's Steakhouse. He has co-authored several books and on January 31, 2010 a statue of him was unveiled at Sun Life Stadium.
