Very sad to hear about the passing of Don Shula today. I was fortunate to meet him and spend time with him. I idolized him as a man, as a father, and as a coach. He was a difference maker. God bless his family and prayers to all. pic.twitter.com/dq7lq27ame
My most treasured day as a sports reporter: On the day before Don Shula’s 80th birthday, he invited me to his house. We spent hours on his veranda, overlooking Biscayne Bay, as he told story after story, treating me not like a reporter but like a grandson. I will never forget it.
Joe Namath didn't play for Don Shula, but the two have been linked from Super Bowl III on. Just talked to Joe. "Coach Shula had dedication, determination, passion to do things the proper way. And he didn't BS people."
Don Shula....@MiamiDolphins were lead by a champion. In 1st days of TV I’d visit his office overlooking the practice field. He was gracious, humorous & gave real game insight. Office was impressive as he was; museum to football, a sport which is forever grateful to him.
Today is a very sad day for us all. We extend our most sincere thoughts and condolences to the family and friends of legendary coach Don Shula and the @MiamiDolphins organization. pic.twitter.com/KXdaswsifn
