Who is Don Shula? His Death & Cause
The winningest coach in National Football League (NFL) history, Shula is best known for his time being the longtime head coach of the Miami Dolphins, leading them to two Super Bowl victories, as well as the only perfect season in NFL history.
Over 33 seasons with the Baltimore Colts and Miami Dolphins, Shula put together a Hall of Fame coaching career, racking up a 347-173-6 record and making him just one of two men to have attained 300 wins in the NFL.
He won back-to-back Super Bowls with Miami, the first in 1972 as the culmination of the only perfect season (17-0) in league history.
Shula was deeply religious throughout his life. He said in 1974, at the peak of his coaching career, that he attended Mass every morning. Shula once considered becoming a Catholic priest but decided he could not commit to being both priest and coach.
Shula died on May 4, 2020, at the age of 90. In recent weeks, Shula, a known restauranteur, teamed up with other former Dolphins to provide free meals to first responders in the coronavirus pandemic. His cause of death is not immediately known, according to the Miami Herald, but it is reportedly not related to the coronavirus pandemic.
