    Shula was born in Grand River, Ohio, a small town along the Lake Erie shore in the north­east­ern part of the state. His par­ents, Dan and Mary, were of Hun­gar­ian ori­gin, hav­ing im­mi­grated when they were children. Shula's fa­ther Dan worked for $9 a week at a rose nurs­ery and saved up to buy the small house where Shula spent his early childhood. The house was next door to a gro­cery store in Grand River owned by Mary's parents.Shula played foot­ball in his neigh­bor­hood as a child, but his par­ents for­bade it after he got a gash on his face when he was 11. As Shula's fam­ily ex­panded—he had six sib­lings, in­clud­ing a set of triplets born in 1936—his fa­ther got a job in the local fish­ing in­dus­try for $15 a week, and later worked at a rayon plant in nearby Painesville, Ohio. Shula at­tended el­e­men­tary school at St. Mary's, a pri­vate Catholic school in Painesville; his mother was a de­vout Catholic, and his fa­ther con­verted to that de­nom­i­na­tion when they marri...

    Shula grad­u­ated in 1951 as a so­ci­ol­ogy major with a minor in math­e­mat­ics, and was of­fered a job teach­ing and coach­ing at Can­ton Lin­coln High School in Can­ton, Ohio for $3,750 a year ($36,938 in 2020). The Cleve­land Browns of the Na­tional Foot­ball League, how­ever, had se­lected him in the ninth round of the 1951 draft that January. Cleve­land had won the NFL cham­pi­onship the pre­vi­ous year be­hind a staunch de­fense and an of­fense led by quar­ter­back Otto Gra­ham, full­back Mar­ion Mot­ley and end Dante Lavelli.:177–182 Shula was joined in the Browns' train­ing camp by John Car­roll team­mate Carl Taseff, whom Cleve­land coach Paul Brown se­lected in the 22nd round.:220 Brown made the se­lec­tions in part be­cause John Car­roll coach Herb Eisele at­tended his coach­ing clin­ics and used sim­i­lar schemes and ter­mi­nol­ogy as Brown did. Shula and Taseff both made the team and were its only two rook­ies in 1951.:220 Shula signed a $5,000-a-year con­tract and pla...

    Early years

    Shula got his first coach­ing job shortly after end­ing his play­ing ca­reer, sign­ing as an as­sis­tant at the Uni­ver­sity of Vir­ginia under Dick Voris in Feb­ru­ary 1958, be­fore being an as­sis­tant at Iowa State University. Vir­ginia fin­ished with a 1–9 record that year. Shula got mar­ried in the sum­mer be­fore the sea­son to Dorothy Bar­tish, who grew up near Painesville. Shula and Bar­tish had begun dat­ing after he grad­u­ated from John Car­roll; she was work­ing as a teacher in Ha...

    Baltimore Colts

    Weeb Ew­bank, under whom Shula had played in Cleve­land and Bal­ti­more, was fired as the Colts' head coach in 1963 fol­low­ing a string of los­ing sea­sons and dis­agree­ments over team strat­egy and or­ga­ni­za­tion with owner Car­roll Rosen­bloom. Colts owner Car­roll Rosen­bloom im­me­di­ately named Shula as the team's next head coach, hav­ing re­cruited him for the job earlier. Shula was only 33 years old, mak­ing him the youngest coach in league his­tory at the time, but Rosen­bloom was...

    Miami Dolphins

    After the 1969 sea­son, Joe Rob­bie, owner of the Miami Dol­phins, signed Shula to a con­tract to be­come Miami's sec­ond head coach. As a re­sult of Shula's sign­ing, the team was charged with tam­per­ing by the NFL, which forced the Dol­phins to give their first-round pick to the Colts. The de­ci­sion was con­tro­ver­sial be­cause Shula and Rob­bie's ne­go­ti­a­tions and sign­ing were con­ducted be­fore and after the of­fi­cial NFL/AFL merger, re­spec­tively. Had the ne­go­ti­a­tions been c...

    In re­tire­ment, Shula has lent his name to a chain of steak­houses, Shula's Steakhouse, and a line of condiments. He ap­peared in Nu­triSys­tem com­mer­cials with Dan Marinoand other for­mer NFL play­ers. Shula also has a hotel in Miami Lakes, Florida, which is home to the Orig­i­nal Shula's Steak House, The Sen­a­tor Course at Shula's Golf Club, The Spa at Shula's, and Shula's Ath­letic Club. The hotel has 205 guest rooms and spe­cial­izes in col­lege and pro­fes­sional sport travel. In 1999, Shula was hon­ored with the "Lom­bardi Award of Ex­cel­lence" from the Vince Lom­bardi Can­cer Foun­da­tion. The award was cre­ated to honor coach Vince Lom­bardi's legacy, and is awarded an­nu­ally to an in­di­vid­ual who ex­em­pli­fies the spirit of the coach. In 2003, in San Diego at Super Bowl XXXVII, Shula per­formed the cer­e­mo­nial coin tossto end the pregame cer­e­monies. As part of a gov­ern­ment pub­lic aware­ness cam­paign, he was the first Amer­i­can to sign up for Medicare Part...

    Shula mar­ried Painesville na­tive Dorothy Bar­tish on July 19, 1958. They had five chil­dren: Dave Shula (b. May 28, 1959), Donna (b. April 28, 1961), Sharon (b. June 30, 1962), Anne (b. May 7, 1964), and Mike Shula (b. June 3, 1965). Dorothy died of breast can­cer on Feb­ru­ary 25, 1991.That same year, the Don Shula Foun­da­tion for Breast Can­cer Re­search was founded. He mar­ried Mary Anne Stephens on Oc­to­ber 16, 1993. On No­vem­ber 25, 1996, he was added to the Miami Dol­phin Honor Roll. In 2007, ads for Nu­triSys­tem geared for peo­ple age 60 and older fea­tur­ing the Shu­las aired. They re­side in the In­dian Creek, Florida, home Mary Anne re­ceived in her di­vorce set­tle­ment from her third hus­band, in­vest­ment banker Jack­son Stephens. Shula has been 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 t...

    Shula set nu­mer­ous records in his 33 sea­sons as a head coach. He is the all-time leader in vic­to­ries with 347. He is first in most games coached (526), most con­sec­u­tive sea­sons coached (33), and Super Bowl losses (four, tied with Bud Grant, Dan Reeves, and Marv Levy). His teams won seven NFL con­fer­ence ti­tles: 1964, 1968, 1971–73, 1982, and 1984. Shula's teams were con­sis­tently among the least pe­nal­ized in the NFL, and Shula served on the Rules Com­mit­tee, to help change the game to a more pass-ori­ented league. He had a win­ning record against al­most every coach he faced, with sev­eral ex­cep­tions: Levy, against whom he was 5–14 dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son and 0–3 in the play­offs; John Mad­den, against whom he was 2–2 in the reg­u­lar sea­son and 1–2 in the play­offs for a total of 3–4; and Bill Cowher, against whom Shula was 1–2 late in his ca­reer. Don Shula also had los­ing records against Tom Flo­res(1-6) Ray­mond Berry (3-8), Walt Michaels (5-7-1), and Vi...
