The Head Football Coach of the only undefeated team in NFL history, 1972's 17-0 Miami Dolphins, passed away today at 90. Shula also was the Head Coach of the 1969 Baltimore Colts team that lost to the Joe Namath's New York Jets in Super Bowl III. Shula holds the record for wins by an NFL coach at 347.

He was the head coach of the Dolphins for 25 years, which is simply unheard of in modern professional sports. The only guy who's got a shot at breaking that record is Bill Belichick, who's been the head coach of the Patriots since 2000. What I always find remarkable is how he completely and totally changed his style from the grind-heavy approach of the 70s in Miami to the high-octane offense of the 80s when he landed Dan Marino. I feel kinda sad he and Marino never got more than one chance to win it all.
