Legendary Miami Dolphins coach, Don Shula, is a proud 1951 John Carroll University graduate and has the most wins of any coach in the history of the National Football League.
Since then, more Blue Streaks have been in leadership positions in the National Football League both on and off of the field, including Josh McDaniels ’99, Nick Caserio ’98, London Fletcher ’97, and Greg Roman ’95 (just to name a few).
Their road to success in the NFL began by earning a degree at Carroll, and the sports media world is taking notice:
