Redskins Roots: A Path to Head Coaching


When the name Don Shula comes to mind, you think of one of the most legendary coaches in NFL history. In 33 seasons of coaching, most of them with the Miami Dolphins, today's opponent, he posted two of the most coveted all-time league marks: the most overall coaching wins (347) and the most regular-season wins (328).

Now, what many people don't know about Shula is that he also played in the pros as a defensive back for seven seasons, spending one year—you guessed it—with the Redskins. After playing for the Cleveland Browns in 1951 and 1952 and the Baltimore Colts from 1953 to 1956, he spent the 1957 season on a 5-6-1 Redskins squad. He intercepted three passes that year and 21 in his career.
