Former Baltimore Colts and Miami Dolphins head coa

Legendary NFL head coach Don Shula has died at the age of 90. Shula is the winningest coach in NFL history and led the Miami Dolphins to two Super Bowls. His biggest accomplishment came in 1972 when the Dolphins went undefeated en route to winning the Super Bowl. That feat has never been accomplished by another NFL team.

Shula started his coaching career with the Baltimore Colts in 1963. In six seasons with the Colts, Shula had an impressive record of 71-23-4 and led them to an NFL Championship in 1968. In 1970, he left to take a job with the Miami Dolphins. He spent 26 seasons in Miami, leading them to five AFC Championships and two Super Bowl victories.

Shula's 328 wins are the most in history. Current New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick sits in second-place with 273 victories.

"Don Shula was the patriarch of the Miami Dolphins for 50 years. He brought the winning edge to our franchise and put the Dolphins and the city of Miami in the national sports scene. Our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to Mary Anne along with his children, Dave, Donna, Sharon, Anne and Mike,"the Miami Dolphins said in the statement.
