    Hall of Fame Head Coach Don Shula has passed away at the age of 90, according to the Miami Dolphins.

    Shula spent several years in the NFL as a player for the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Colts, and Washington Redskins. He also coached for the Colts but is best known for a 25-year long tenure with the Miami Dolphins.

    “Don Shula was the patriarch of the Miami Dolphins for 50 years,” the team said in a statement. “He brought the winning edge to our franchise and put the Dolphins and the city of Miami in the national sports scene.”

    Shula’s Dolphins won back-to-back Super Bowls in the 1970s. In 1972, his Phins did what no team has yet to do again: engineer a perfect season.

    Shula’s 348 wins stand alone at the top of the record books. George Halas and Bill Belichick are the only other members of the prestigious 300-win club alongside Shula.

    Shula was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1997 and dipped his toes into the Hollywood pool, appearing in a cameo role in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

    He will be missed.
