Senators honor Chuck Noll

Published by Tracie Mauriello on .

Chuck Noll fans could have an extra reason to break out the terrible towels for opening day this year.
Pennsylvania’s bipartisan Senate duo has introduced a resolution making Sept. 7 Chuck Noll day to celebrate the achievements of the late Steelers head coach and Pro Football Hall of Famer.
It’s also opening day, when the Steelers will take on the Cleveland Browns.
“Chuck Noll provided the culture of success on and off the field,” said Mr. Casey, a Democrat. “He inspired his players, his staff and the entire Steelers Nation to strive for greatness.”
Mr. Toomey, a Republican, called him one of the greatest coaches in NFL history and credited him with turning the once downtrodden Steelers franchise into a powerhouse team, leading the team to four Super Bowl titles and nearly 200 career wins.
Mr. Noll died on June 13 at his home in Sewickley, Pa. He was 82.
