PITTSBURGH – Hall of Fame coach Chuck Noll is being remembered at a funeral mass by dozens of former players and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
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 Tuesday.
Greene credits Noll as the biggest reason the Steelers were transformed from one of the league's biggest losers into the "City of Champions" during the 1970s.
Hall of Fame safety Mel Blount says "Steeler Nation has lost one of its pillars," but Noll's legacy will live on through the lives he touched.
