Hall of Fame coach Don Shula, who led the Miami Dolphins to the only undefeated season in NFL history in 1972, passed away at the age of 90.

The Miami Dolphins issued a statement:

“Don Shula was the patriarch of the Miami Dolphins for 50 years,” it read. “He brought the winning edge to our franchise and put the Dolphins and the city of Miami in the national sports scene. Our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to Mary Anne along with his children Dave, Donna, Sharon, Anne and Mike.”
