Don Shula dead at 90: NFL world mourns loss of legendary Dolphins coach

Don Shula, the NFL’s all-time winningest head coach with 347 triumphes, passed away Monday at age 90.

Shula’s NFL profession was exhibited by his capability to bend with his players. In the 1970 s, the Dolphins were a power-run team, while the Marino years were concentrated on an aerial attack on opposing defenses. That 1972 Dolphins team stays the only unbeaten team in NFL history.

The death of the NFL’s all-time winningest head coach drew strong responses from the NFL neighborhood:

“One thing I never want to be accused of is not working.”
RIP Coach Don Shula.

Don Shula did a remarkable thing throughout his Hall of Popularity profession: rotating to a completely diff. design to empower his personnel.

The ’70 s Super Bowl champs were power run teams.

The ’80 s/’90 s were pass- pleased aerial attacks w/ Marino.

Flexible, fantastic football mind. RIP

The Shula- Jets competition ran deep. 6 years back, I interviewed him for a 20- year anniversary piece on the Phony Spike Game. I asked him what he states to #Jets fans in So Fla who bring it up: “I don’t talk to Jets fans in South Florida. Or in New York. Or in the United States.”
