The football world lost a legend on Monday, as the 90-year-old Don Shula passed away peacefully at his home, the Miami Dolphins announced via Twitter and confirmed by one of his children.

Known primarily for his 26-year run as the Dolphins’ head coach, Shula exited football as the game’s all-time winningest coach, with 328 regular-season victories and 347 total victories in a 33-year coaching run with Miami and Baltimore. Shula’s totals still hold as the most on both fronts, too. (New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, meanwhile, currently has 273 regular-season victories, and 304 total victories, to his name.)

Shula was also the man behind the 1972 Dolphins, who went 14-0 in the regular season and then won all three postseason tilts to become the only undefeated team in league history.

Overall, Shula led Miami to Super Bowl championships (VII, VIII) — and he also won an NFL championship with the Baltimore Colts in 1968 — and was a four-time NFL Coach of the Year Award winner. With countless records to his name over a 33-year head coaching run that ended in 1995, Shula was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1997.

Shula did make an appearance at Super Bowl LIV, which was hosted at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, as part of the league’s pregame festivities honoring the 100-year anniversary of the National Football League.
