History

The Miami Dolphins are a member of the NFL’s American Football Conference. The team began play in 1966 as a member of the American Football League. The franchise was founded by attorney Joe Robbie and comedian Danny Thomas. Along with the Atlanta Falcons who also joined the AFL in 1966, the Dolphins were the only other pro football team in the deep south of the U.S at the time.

 Joe Robbie decided to have a fan contest to name the team once the franchise had been granted by the AFL. The name Dolphins was eventually selected from twelve finalists.

The Dolphins became a charter member of the NFL in 1970 when the AFL and NFL merged to form one league. The Dolphins quickly became a dominant team once joining the new league. They appeared in the 1971 Super Bowl, but lost the match to the Dallas Cowboys. However, the 1972 campaign would see the club win all fourteen regular season games and go on to win the Super Bowl. This gave the team a perfect mark of 17 to 0 for the 1972 season making them the first NFL team to go undefeated for an entire year.  

The Dolphins would repeat as Super Bowl Champions the next year, making them the first franchise to win back to back titles. They were also the first team to appear in three consecutive Super Bowls. The football club also made Super Bowl appearances in both 1982 and 1984, but lost on both occasions.

Beginning in 1983, the Dolphins would be led by Dan Marino at quarterback. Marino would go on to become one of the NFL’s most prolific passers in history. Marino set many NFL records during his career but was not able to win a championship for the club. During the 1986 season, the Dolphins began play at Joe Robbie Stadium, which replaced the Miami Orange Bowl as the Dolphins home stadium. The Orange Bowl had been the team’s home since 1966. Joe Robbie Stadium has since undergone several name changes and is now known as Sun Life Stadium.

Another notable personality in Dolphins history is Don Shula, who was the team’s head coach from 1970 until 1995. Shula helped lead the Dolphins to their two consecutive Super Bowl wins in ’72 and ’73. He would go on to compile more wins than any other coach in NFL history, before stepping down in 1995.
