The legendary coach recorded only two losing seasons in his 33-year coaching career, and led six teams to the Super Bowl. Shula was best known for his time with the Miami Dolphins and the Baltimore Colts. Shula won his first championship coaching the 1968 Colts. In 1972, Shula coached the only perfect season in NFL history. The Miami Dolphins won Super Bowl VII against the Washington Redskins 14-7.
