Funny Story about how a coach handled curfew violations

Don Shula, who used to coach the Miami Dolphins, just passed away. There's a funny story about how he handled curfew violations. He had been having problems with players sneaking out and not observing curfew. One night when they were at a hotel for a road game. When Coach Shula got ready to go to bed, he went down to the valet with a football and a sharpie and asked the valet to ask for an autograph from any player who left the hotel. The next morning, he boarded the bus with the football and read off the names, saying "You've just been benched for the first time."
