Dartmouth College’s football team has added a new man to its roster: Former NFL head coach Dave Shula, who is joining the squad as an assistant coach.
Shula, himself a Dartmouth alumnus, has “agreed to guide the Big Green’s receivers for head coach Buddy Teevens, a close personal friend,” according to Valley News reporter Tris Wykes.
Shula is the oldest of five children of the legendary Don Shula, who coached the NFL’s Baltimore Colts and Miami Dolphins and was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame after winning a league-best 347 games. David Shula coached that league’s Cincinnati Bengals from 1992-96 and previously worked for the Dallas Cowboys and under his father with the Dolphins, with whom he became the youngest assistant in NFL history at 23.
The team begins its spring practice on April 10.
