Steeler greats honor esteemed coach Chuck Noll

 

Hall of Fame coach Chuck Noll was remembered at a funeral mass by dozens of former players and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Noll is the only coach in NFL history to win four Super Bowls while leading the Steelers from 1969 to 1991. He died last week at 82. Steelers President Art Rooney II and Hall of Fame defensive lineman Joe Greene were among Noll’s pallbearers. Greene credited Noll as the biggest reason Pittsburgh was transformed into the “City of Champions” during the 1970s. Hall of Fame safety Mel Blount said “Steeler Nation has lost one of its pillars,” but Noll’s legacy will live on through the lives he touched. “I’ve gotten more from Chuck off the field as much as I got on the field,” said former tight end Mike Mularkey, now a coach with Tennessee. – AP
