Mike Shula

Mike Shula, son of legendary NFL coach Don Shula, worked as the head coach at his alma mater, the University of Alabama, from 2003-2006, collecting an overall record of 26-23 during that time. Shula was Alabama’s starting quarterback from 1984-1986 and was hired in 2003 at the age of 38, making him the youngest head coach in the country at that time.

He arrived in Tuscaloosa in the wake of NCAA sanctions and the termination of former head coach Mike Price before he ever coached a game for the Crimson Tide. Shula had his best season at Alabama in 2005, when he led the tide to a 10-2 record and a victory over Texas Tech in the Cotton Bowl. The team regressed to 6-6 the following season and lost to Auburn for the fifth year in a row, four of which came under Shula. He was fired following the 2006 season and replaced by Nick Saban.
