Don Shula after having coached for 33 years ,26 years with the Miami Dolphins and 7 years with the Baltimore Colts comprised a record of
347-173-6 (.665)a feat that will probably never be duplicated. The first coach to ever lead an NFL team to an undefeated season of 17-0 and lead a team to three straight Super Bowls.This was in a period when there were mostly 14 game seasons and two seasons where there were strikes.


Shula had two losing seasons within his tenure as head coach,where he won at least 6 games, he was 6-8 in 1976 and 6-10 in 1989. George Halas was the only other coach to win 300 games.


My question is, is there any possibility or probability of other coaches surpassing Shula's record ? Most of the veteran coaches have retired ,Joe Gibbs just recently so it leaves very few with a chance and other coaches a long way to go.

I heard he was the biggest loser coach after going on Nutri-System.

And, that's one heckuva record. I can imagine his win/loss record getting beaten someday by some coach. But what I cannot so easily imagine is another coach staying with one team for 26 years like he did with the fish.
