Tampa Bay quarterback Mike Shula retired and became the NFL’s youngest assistant coach when he accepted Coach Ray Perkins’ offer to remain with the Buccaneers as an offensive aide.

Shula, 22, joins his father, Don, and brother, David, as coaches on the professional level. Don Shula has been an NFL head coach for 25 years, including the past 18 seasons with the Miami Dolphins, and has employed David, 28, as an assistant since December, 1982.

Perkins said Mike Shula, a 12th-round draft choice in 1987 who didn’t play a down during his rookie season, will work with the club’s offensive staff as well as assist the head coach with Buccaneer quarterbacks.
