Chuck Noll, Legendary Steelers Coach, Dead at 82

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.

Report: Steelers Reward Maurkice Pouncey with 5-Year Extension

Report: Steelers Reward Maurkice Pouncey with 5-Year Extension

Pittsburgh Steelers/NFL(NEW YORK) — The Pittsburgh Steelers recognize they need to keep their offensive line in tact if they want to get back to the playoffs. In an effort to do so, they’ve rewarded center Maurkice Pouncey with a five-year extension.
Pouncey is one of the NFL’s richest offensive lineman. His new extension is worth $44 million, including $13 million in guaranteed money.
In new money, Pouncey is the NFL’s highest-paid center at $8.8 million. His new deal will pay him $48 million over the next six years.
The 24-year-old Pouncey was selected 18th overall by the Steelers in the 2010 Draft. Since coming to Pittsburgh, he’s been one of the best at his position.
Pouncey is also fortunate because about nine months ago, he suffered a torn ACL.
Maurkice’s twin brother, Mike, is a center for the Miami Dolphins and has been vocal in his desire for a new contract as well.
