Hall of Fame football coach Chuck Noll, the only coach to win four Super Bowls, died Friday. He was 82.
Noll died of natural causes at his Pittsburgh-area home, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner said. He coached the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1969-1991, going 209-156-1 and winning four Super Bowls from 1975-80.
“Coach Noll’s quiet leadership produced extraordinary results that deeply inspired players, coaches and fans,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Saturday in a statement. “He always put the team, his players, and the game first. His legacy of excellence will forever be an important part of the history of the Steelers and the NFL.”
Noll had battled health problems in recent years. He became the youngest head coach in NFL history, at the age 34, when the Steelers hired him in 1969 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993.
