MIAMI – Tuesday marks a special anniversary for the Miami Dolphins.
On this date in 1970, the fins hired a new head coach.
Don Shula was brought in to replace George Wilson.
It turned out to be the right move for the franchise.
Shula became the winning-est coach in NFL history.
He led the Fins to back-to-back Super Bowls, including the perfect season in 1972.
The team tweeted this date in history.
It's an interesting bit of nostalgia for a franchise who has been dealing with a bullying scandal, and once again missing the playoffs.
