Author Jack Gilden Tells Us About His Book, “Collision of Wills: Johnny Unitas, Don Shula, and the Rise of the Modern NFL”
The 1960’s was a landmark era that brought us the Civil Rights movement, the British Invasion, and the Vietnam War.
Another war was happening between a star quarterback and the coach of one of the most successful franchises in sports – Johnny Unitas and Don Shula. It was a complicated relationship between player and coach that fueled the Baltimore Colts, in an era where their losses were as memorable as their victories.
We sit down with Jack Gilden, who wrote a book about the Unitas/Shula relationship. It’s called “Collision of Wills: Johnny Unitas, Don Shula, and the Rise of the Modern NFL.”
