Legendary Miami coach Don Shula, record winner, who led the Dolphins to two coronations in the Super Bowl, including the 1972 undefeated feat, a unique feat in the NFL, died Monday at 90, the franchise announced. " Don Shula has been the patriarch of the Miami Dolphins for 50 years, " said the Florida club, adding that he died peacefully at home. " It brought the culture of winning to our franchise and put the Dolphins and the city of Miami on the national sports scene ," he added.
Arrived at the helm of the team in 1970, four years after the creation of the franchise, Shula immediately had convincing results, leading the Dolphins to three Super Bowls in a row (1971, 1972, 1973). After a setback against the Dallas Cowboys (1971), Miami realizes in stride the perfect regular season, with 14 victories in a row, followed by a faultless journey to the coronation at the expense of the Washington Redskins.
No team has done so well since, even if the New England Patriots of Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady were close in 2007, beaten in the final by the New York Giants, after an undefeated run thus far. In 1973, Shula leads Miami to its second consecutive Superbowl, to the detriment of the Minnesota Vikings, which will also be the last, since the Dolphins will fail in the finals 1982 and 1984. In 1995, he ended his career as a technician started 35 years earlier at the Detroit Lions (1960-1962), followed by the Baltimore Colts (1963-1969) then in Miami, with a record record of 347 victories.
