MIAMI — Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Don Shula died Monday. He was 90.
Shula died at his home in South Florida.
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said that if there were a Mount Rushmore for the NFL, Don Shula would be chiseled into the granite.
He won the most games of any NFL coach and led the Dolphins to the only perfect season in league history. Shula surpassed George Halas’ league-record 324 victories in 1993.
He retired following the 1995 season with 347 wins, 173 losses and six ties, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1997.
Don Shula through the years
The Ohio native played running back at John Carroll University and cornerback in the pros for seven seasons.
Shula became the youngest head coach in NFL history when the Baltimore Colts hired him in 1963 at age 33.
