Don Shula Net Worth: Don Shula is an American former professional football cornerback and coach who has a net worth of $30 million. Don Shula was born January 4, 1930 in Grand River, Ohio. Don Shula became head coach of the Baltimore Colts in 1963. During Shula's leadership, the Colts won 71 games, lost 23 and tied 4. As coach of the Miami Dolphins (1970–1996), he became the first NFL coach to win 100 games in 10 seasons. In 1972–73, the Dolphins became the first team to go undefeated through an entire season and the playoffs, culminating in a Super Bowl victory. During his career as a football player, Shula played for the Cleveland Browns (1951-52), the Baltimore Colts (1953-56) and the Washington Redskins (1957). As a coach, he began his professional football coaching career with the Detroit Lions (1960-62), moving to coaching the Baltimore Colts in 1953 then on to the Miami Dolphins in 1963. In retirement, Shula has lent his name to a chain of steakhouses, Shula's Steakhouse, and a line of condiments. He also endorsed NutriSystem in commercials with Dan Marino and other former NFL players. In 2011, he received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor in recognition of his humanitarian efforts. Deeply religious, Shula once considered becoming a Catholic priest, but decided he could not commit to being both a priest and coach. Shula holds the distinction of having coached five different quarterbacks to Super Bowl appearances (John Unitas and Earl Morrall in 1968, Bob Griese in 1971, 1972 and 1973, David Woodley in 1982 and Dan Marino in 1984), three of them (Unitas, Griese and Marino) future Hall of Famers. He also coached John Unitas (fondly known as Johnny U) to another World Championship appearance (in the pre-Super Bowl era) in 1964. The only other NFL coach to approach this distinction is Joe Gibbs, who coached four Super Bowls with three different quarterbacks (Joe Theismann, Doug Williams and Mark Rypien), winning three times.
