Nope, it started with the Gints.

I think every SB coach got the dunk after them.

Actually they showed it... started with the 85 bears.

EDIT: actually that wasn't @ the superbowl. The 85 bears was during the playoffs. But it was the first Gatorade bath caught on tape.

I thought it was the gints and it caught on. No way it was duh bears. I remember the giants starting that thing. Could have been 1st SB dunk but not duh bears that started it.

WHO REALLY DUNKED FIRST?

Parcells and Carson will always be associated with Gatorade. Carson had a 13-year career that included nine Pro Bowls, but today, the most common photograph he is asked to autograph at card shows is that of him throwing Gatorade on Parcells.


Carson often gets the credit, even though Jim Burt was the actual inventor -- or so we thought. That was until 1999, when Chicago Bears Hall of Fame defensive lineman Dan Hampton claimed that he actually executed the first dunk. This prompted a reporter for the Daily Herald in Chicago to review a video of the game between the Bears and the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13 of the 1984 season.

With time still on the clock but the Bears safely assured of clinching the NFC Central division title, Steve McMichael held Bears coach Mike Ditka while Hampton and fellow teammate Mike Singletary moved in.

"I stood in front of him as the game was still going on, and he was protesting, 'Get away from me,'" McMichael wrote in his recently published book. "He couldn't figure out why I was talking to him when he was trying to run a game. I actually had to grab his shoulders and hold him, and Dan came from behind and just doused him. That's when the Gatorade baths started."[1]
Perhaps Hampton's mistake was that he and his teammates didn't perform the act again when the Bears thrashed the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl that same year.

I don't remember it but I can see why they dunked Ditka and carried Buddy off the field. Not a lot of loved lost between their D and their O.

Maybe it just didn't get alot of coverage

The 1985 Bears were the 1st team to have both their HC and DC carried off the field.

I don't remember any dunks though until after 86.
