Very sad that he went before our franchise was able to win another title.
That said, he lived a long full life and will always be considered one of the greatest coaches in league history.
Wow. The coach I grew up with. What a legend. RIP.
Wow. this just came across my feed. I'm in shock.
That sums up what I wanted to say. Very sad day, and one more thing in a rough year.
Very sad news.
Don Shula was Head Coach of the Dolphins when I started following them in the mid-80s.
The man was an icon, not just for the Miami football franchise, not even just for the NFL, not even just for American sports, but for the country as a whole.
He will be greatly missed and I send my condolences to his family and friends.
R. I. P. Don.
I was blessed to watch him during almost all of his career... The Grace of the Lord be with you, Coach!!
ESPN and FS1 are covering Shula now.
This just hit me like a pile of bricks.
RIP to the greatest ever
RIP to the greatest Dolphin ever.
Man, screw 2020.
Sorry for your loss Dolphin nation. He was awesome.
Could not agree more!
Like Rev Rick, I to had the privilege of watching Shula for most of his career. His days in Baltimore were a little before my time, but I was blessed to be able to watch the Don and the perfect 72 season the first year I ever watched football.
Teacher, coach, mentor, leader...Shula was the epitome of what every player craves in a head coach. He touched the lives of so many people; the players he coached over his illustrious career, the fans of Dolphins, the city of Miami and the nation as a whole.
Paul Brown, Curly Lambeau, George Halas, Tom Landry, Vince Lombardi...all legends in their own right; slide over boys THE DON is taking his place at the head of the table now.
Thank you Coach Shula for all of the wonderful memories and for shaping my love of football. You will be sorely missed forever!
Rest in Peace Coach.
Greatest coach to ever coach football IMO. He is the reason we are all still dolphins fans, because we all hope that things will return to the standard he put in place here in South Florida in the 70s. Without him, we are the Lions of the South.
God Bless. Sad day for Dolphins fans.
Man, this was just one of those things you knew was going to happen, because no one lives forever, but you could never be ready for. He was immortal...he IS immortal. But he's gone and he's left us poorer without him. I've been a Dolphins fan since I was old enough to understand what football was, a Dolphins fan since first grade, the year of their perfect season. To me, Shula WAS the Dolphins.
Rest in peace, coach.
If you want why i fell in love with football in an image, this is it.
i love you. This franchise is your legacy. Rest in peace, coach.
I think the best way to honor him this upcoming season is to wear the throwbacks all season, a patch on the jersey and decal on the helmet.
Honestly this reminds me of Al Arbour dying and how it was felt on Long Island.
Same thing. Father of a franchise. The coach others aspire to be. The man others aspire to be.
God bless Coach
Thank you for the memories and legend that will never die.
RIP Don Shula.
A great one has passed, great coach and a great man. Thanks for the memories, may you rest in peace.
Disappointed to hear this news today. RIP to the one and only GOAT when it comes to NFL coaches. What he accomplished and what he stood for had a big impact on the league & of course our beloved franchise; if it wasn't for him who knows if Miami is the sports town it is today & who knows if the Dolphins still exist today. IMO he tops the list of coaches & stands alone as the GOAT, and that's not just because I'm a fan of the team.
Hopefully we're on the right track now as a team, hopefully this QB/coach combo can do the special things that Shula & Marino did. If we get to play some football this year there will certainly be many tributes to him, but it would be great to honor him by bringing the Lombardi trophy back to Miami.
Hope your safe and healthy Brandon.
You know I don't consider myself a religious person Rev but when I heard this news today, I was certain that God is smiling ear to ear right now, Arm around the Don sipping on some champagne and talking about perfection and glory. And at some point in the conversation God will look at Don and say "You know Don, It's only going to be a few more years before Satan collects on his deal with Belicheat. Why don't you get together with Gabriel and put together a team. Make him really suffer, losing to you, FOR ETERNITY!!!!!" Hold on a minute..."SWEETNESS!!! HEY! SWEETNESS!! Come over here for a minute. How would you like to play RB for Don here? Get hold of Butkis too would ya! Hey! Guys!! Dons here! ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!!
What a punch in the gut. I was out fishing this weekend and randomly started thinking about Coach Shula, thinking about how he’s still the greatest coach of all time and hoping Belicheat never passes his winningest record.
RIP Coach, and thank you for the best football memories of my life. I’ll never love the NFL as much as I did growing up a fan of your Dolphins.
