Twitter reacts to the death of Don Shula

The sports world lost another legend today. Hall of Fame head coach Don Shula died today. According to the Miami Dolphins, Shula died at his home. He was 90. 

Shula was the winningest coach in NFL history and is the only coach to lead a team to an undefeated season, which he pulled off with the 1972 Miami Dolphins. In his 33-year coaching career, Shula coached in six Super Bowls, winning two of them.  

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell gave his thoughts in a statement on the life of Don Shula:

“Don Shula will always be remembered as one of the greatest coaches and contributors in the history of our game. He made an extraordinarily positive impact on so many lives. The winningest coach in NFL history and the only one to lead a team to a perfect season, Coach Shula lived an unparalleled football life. As a player, Hall of Fame coach, and long-time member and co-chair of the NFL Competition Committee, he was a remarkable teacher and mentor who, for decades, inspired excellence and exemplified integrity. His iconic legacy will endure through his family and continue to inspire generations to come. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Don’s wife Mary Anne, along to his children Dave, Donna, Sharon and Mike, the Shula family, and the Dolphins organization.”
