Don Shula Biography

Donald Francis "Don" Shula is a former American football cornerback and coach.

He is best known as coach of the Miami Dolphins, the team he led to two Super Bowl victories, and to the only perfect season in the history of the National Football League. Shula was named 1993 Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated. He currently holds the NFL record for most career wins with 347. Shula only had two losing seasons in his 36-year career of coaching in the NFL. He has been head coach for a record six Super Bowls. In his first, he set the record for the longest period to be shut out. His next Super Bowl he set the record for the lowest points by any team. The very next year he turned that all around during his perfect season, breaking his record of longest period with a shut out, this time with him on the winning side. As of 2013, Shula's three Super Bowl records and total NFL wins remain unbroken. Source: Wikipedia
