MIAMI (AP) Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Don Shula has been admitted to a hospital for treatment of fluid retention and sleep apnea.

Shula's ailments were confirmed in a statement Tuesday by his wife, Mary Anne. He was admitted Monday, and she said the family ''is looking for a speedy recovery.''

The 86-year-old Shula led his teams to an NFL-record 347 victories in 33 seasons and helped the Miami Dolphins achieve the only perfect season in league history in 1972. He retired following the 1995 season and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1997.
