Shula lost his first regular-season game, a September 15 matchup against the Giants.

Shula guided the team to a 12—2 record in his second year as coach. The Colts tied the Green Bay Packers with a 10—3—1 record at the end of the season, forcing a playoff to determine which of them would play in the championship game. Before the season began, Unitas injured his elbow and was replaced by backup Earl Morrall. The Jets were led by quarterback Joe Namath , who guaranteed a victory before the game despite being the underdog.

New York won the game 16—7. Shula spent one more season as the head coach of the Colts, and missed the playoffs. After the season, Joe Robbie , owner of the Miami Dolphins , signed Shula to a contract to become Miami's second head coach. As a result of Shula's signing, the team was charged with tampering by the NFL, which forced the Dolphins to give their first-round pick to the Colts.

In , the Dolphins were unbeaten in the regular season, 14—0—0. They swept the playoffs and finished 17—0—0. Shula changed his coaching strategy as his personnel changed. His Super Bowl teams in , , , and were keyed by a run-first offensive strategy and a dominating defense. Marino won the starting job halfway through the regular season , and by , the Dolphins were back in the Super Bowl , due largely to Marino's record 5, yards through the air and 48 touchdown passes.

Despite consistent success in the regular season, Shula was unable to win in the postseason, failing in 12 trips to the playoffs—including two more Super Bowl appearances—before retiring after the season.

His retirement following that regular season ended one of the greatest coaching legacies in NFL history. He set numerous records in his 33 seasons as a head coach. He is first in most games coached , most consecutive seasons coached 33 , and Super Bowl Appearances—six, appearing once with the Baltimore Colts and five times with the Miami Dolphins. Shula had a 2—4 record in his Super Bowl appearances. The following season, the Dolphins had a chance to win a third title in three years, but they fell to the Oakland Raiders 28—26 , in an AFC divisional playoff game in one of the more popular playoff games ever played.

With 35 seconds remaining in the game, Ken Stabler was in the process of being sacked by Vern Den Herder. Just before he was tackled, he threw a completed desperation forward pass to his running back Clarence Davis in the game's final moments, and in doing so, ended Miami's two-year dominance. The Dolphins team was decimated the following season by the creation of the now defunct World Football League and their inability to match contract offers to three of its star players—Larry Csonka, Jim Kiick, and Paul Warfield—to the rival league.

The Dolphin franchise has never been able to duplicate the success of — In retirement, Shula has lent his name to a chain of steakhouses , Shula's Steakhouse, [44] and a line of condiments. The hotel has guest rooms and specializes in college and professional sport travel.

The award was created to honor coach Vince Lombardi 's legacy, and is awarded annually to an individual who exemplifies the spirit of the coach.

At John Carroll University, he endowed the Don Shula Chair in Philosophy, which supports the Philosophy Department by presenting programs of interest to philosophers and the general public. Shula married Painesville native Dorothy Bartish on July 19, They had five children: May 28, , Donna b.

Dorothy died of breast cancer on February 25, He married Mary Anne Stephens on October 16, In , ads for NutriSystem geared for people age 60 and older featuring the Shulas aired. Shula has been deeply religious throughout his life. He said in , at the peak of his coaching career, that he attended mass every morning.

Shula set numerous records in his 33 seasons as a head coach. He is the all-time leader in victories with He is first in most games coached , most consecutive seasons coached 33 , and Super Bowl losses four, tied with Bud Grant , Dan Reeves , and Marv Levy.

His teams won seven NFL conference titles: Shula's teams were consistently among the least penalized in the NFL, and Shula served on the Rules Committee, to help change the game to a more pass-oriented league. He had a winning record against almost every coach he faced, with several exceptions: Levy, against whom he was 5—14 during the regular season and 0—3 in the playoffs; John Madden, against whom he was 2—2 in the regular season and 1—2 in the playoffs for a total of 3—4; and Bill Cowher, against whom Shula was 1—2 late in his career.

The game's winner receives a traveling trophy named the Don Shula Award. On January 31, , a statue of him was unveiled at Hard Rock Stadium. He has co-authored three books: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Don Shula Shula in Pro Football Hall of Fame.
