Chuck Noll, Legendary Steelers Coach, Dead at 82

George Gojkovich/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) — Chuck Noll, the Hall of Fame coach who led Pittsburgh to four Super Bowl titles, has passed away at the age of 82. The Alleghany County Medical Examiner confirmed that Noll had died of natural causes.
After playing seven season in the NFL, all with the Cleveland Browns, Noll began his ascent to one of the greatest coaches in league history as the defensive line coach for the Los Angeles Chargers in 1960. Noll spent three years as the defensive coordinator for the Baltimore Colts who set a record for fewest points allowed in 1968.
A year later he would be named the 14th head coach in Steelers history, a team that had eight consecutive losing seasons prior to his arrival. Pittsburgh won the first of four Super Bowl titles in 1975 before winning three more championships in 1976, 1979, and 1980.
In 23 seasons, Noll was 209-156-1 including the postseason. He was inducted into the professional football Hall of Fame in 1993.
