Default Dan Rooney, the Pittsburgh Steelers chairman dies at 84

Quote:
Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney died Thursday, the team confirmed on social media. He was 84.

The team did not specify the cause of death.


Rooney grew up with the team after his father Art Rooney Sr. founded it in 1933, a year after Dan Rooney was born. The younger Rooney succeeded his father as the president of the organization in the ’70s but had already been playing a large role in guiding the team.

With him at the helm, the Steelers won four Super Bowls in six years, beginning with Super Bowl IX in 1975. The win came after Rooney influenced the Steelers’ decisions during the 1974 NFL draft, where the team picked up eventual Hall of Famers Lynn Swann, Jack Lambert, John Stallworth and Mike Webster.

With Rooney as president, the Steelers would go on to win Super Bowls X, XIII and XIV.
May He Rest In Peace.

Without families like Rooney, Mara, and Halas there may not be any NFL. May he rest in peace.

Really great guy. I met him numerous times. Went to college with his son, Dan Jr. in the '80s.

Al Davis, Adam? Really? Bull-freakin'-sh!t, to mention him with those others.

Hijack rant off. Sympathy to the Rooney family.

I've admired Dan as far back as I can possibly remember.
When I heard the news yesterday, my heart broke.
We lost a great, great man. I thank God He let us have him this long.
