Chuck Noll, the only NFL coach to lead a team to four Super Bowl titles, died on Friday at age 82.
Liz Reid, from NPR member station WESA in Pittsburgh, reports the Steelers coach was considered one of the greatest. She filed this report for our Newscast unit:
"Noll took the head coaching job in Pittsburgh in 1969, after Penn State's Joe Paterno turned it down."The Steelers won a single game that season, but under Noll's guidance, they steadily improved their record until clinching their first Super Bowl victory in January 1975."Noll was known as an intelligent and meticulous coach who focused on football fundamentals and shied away from the media spotlight."He retired from coaching in 1991 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993."He passed away at his home outside Pittsburgh Friday night."
