Deeply saddened to hear the passing of Coach Don Shula. He always treated me so well & was so kind to my family. He was a champion on the sidelines, one of the greatest. Off the field, he did so much philanthropic work in the community. A true legend who will be greatly missed pic.twitter.com/laaswjMOBs— Alex Rodriguez (@AROD) May 4, 2020
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— Coach Gary Pinkel (@GaryPinkel) May 4, 2020

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.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) May 4, 2020
Don Shula represented everything great about football. Discipline, determination, and most of all, perfection.— Travis Wingfield (@WingfieldNFL) May 4, 2020
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."— Sam Farmer (@LATimesfarmer) May 4, 2020
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.— Phil Simms (@PhilSimmsQB) May 4, 2020
