Shula, who began his NFL career as a player in 1951 with the Cleveland Browns, would only play in the league until 1957. However, he made his mark and forever left an impact on the NFL with his work as a head coach.

After taking over the Miami Dolphins in 1970, previously serving as the Baltimore Colts head coach, Shula built the team into one of the NFL’s greatest dynasties.

Just two years after taking over, Shula’s Dolphins achieved perfection with the only undefeated season in NFL history on their way to a Super Bowl title. Shula would win two Super Bowls with the Dolphins, an NFL championship with the Colts in 1968 and holds the all-time record for wins by a head coach (347).

On this tragic day of great loss, the NFL world honored Shula and took a moment to remember his incredible legacy.

USC and Don Shula's Dolphins were both perfect in 1972 .
Don Shula, the winningest head coach in the history of the NFL, died on Monday at age 90. Shula's most important connection with a USC player was his relationship with Monte Clark, which we briefly looked at in the days leading up to the NFL Draft. Clark had a soli d NFL playing career as a USC draft pick, but then became Shula’s offensive line coach for the Super Bowl-winning Miami Dolphins teams of the early 1970s. Clark parlayed that experience into a head coaching career with the Detroit Lions. He won a division title and reached the playoffs, which automatically makes him a relatively decent Lions coach in the Super Bowl era.
